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.

Online Survey

From December 10, 2021, to January 7, 2022, an online survey collected feedback on the features and equipment for the new playground. The design team will use the community feedback collected in the survey to develop a final playground design.

Clydesdale Park Playground is located at the southeast corner of the park, near the intersection of Kathrose Drive and Clydesdale Drive.

The playground currently includes:

  • Two swing sets with:
    • Two swings for ages two to five
    • Two swings for ages five and up
  • A play structure with stairs and a swirl swing (red, blue and yellow structure)
  • A small see-saw (yellow)
  • A junior wood play structure with:
    • A double slide (blue)
    • A junior climbing structure
    • A junior ramp climber
    • A steering wheel (blue)
    • A mini table (red)
  • Sand under all play areas

The playground will be redesigned using feedback from the community. The redesigned playground is proposed to include:

  • Accessible play equipment and an accessible pathway connection to the new playground area. This means that people of all abilities will be able to play at this playground.
  • Playground equipment for ages two to twelve
  • Woodchip playground surfacing

Improvements will only be made in the general playground area and will not include any new water or lighting features, or improvements to other areas of the park.
