September 2022

The budget for the playground improvements has increased due to support from the local Councillor’s office. The new funding will allow for additional enhancements to the preferred playground design, which was developed with the help of community feedback in early winter 2022.

The preferred design will be further enhanced to increase overall play value. The layout, equipment, and equipment colours that were preferred by the community during the community engagement process will remain as-is.

From the bottom left to the top right, the image shows a senior climbing structure with two large slides and three climbing options. There is a separate climbing structure with monkey bars and hanging rings. There is a standalone double spring toy, teeter totter, and balancing board. There is a swingset with two belt swings, a tot swing, and an accessible swing.
