The City is updating the Dieppe Park Family Play Zone and creating a Dieppe Park Improvement Plan to guide long-term park improvements.

Project Timeline

  • October to November 2020: Public consultation, visioning
  • December 2020: Public consultation, design options
  • January to February 2021: Public consultation, final design
  • Spring/Summer 2021: Playground tender
  • Summer/Fall 2021: Construction of the new playground/water play area

The timeline is subject to change.

Dieppe Park is located on Cosburn Avenue just east of Greenwood Avenue. The three-hectare park has an outdoor artificial ice rink and skate trail, a lit ball diamond, a multipurpose sports field, a Family Play Zone, which includes a children’s playground and a splash pad, and a parking lot.

The Family Play Zone, including the playground and splash pad, are being updated. In addition to these updates, the City is creating a Dieppe Park Improvement Plan to guide longer-term park improvements. This plan will identify and prioritize future park improvement projects to undertake as funding becomes available.

We need input from park, playground and splash pad users and community members to help design the new Dieppe Park Family Zone and the longer-term Park Improvement Plan.

Project Scope

What is in the project scope:

  • Improvements to the Family Play zone, including the Splash Pad and Playground (Image 1)

What is not in the project scope:

  • Major updates related to sports fields such as field resurfacing and expansion, removal, or relocation.
  • Major updates related to existing buildings, including changing the location of the buildings or their renovation.
    • While sports fields and existing buildings in the park are not within the scope of the Dieppe Park Improvement Plan, they are part of a City wide State of Good Repair Program. They will be assessed and if required they will be improved in the future as part of the City’s State of Good Repair program.
  • A Dog Off-Leash Area.
    • A suitable location for a Dog Off-Leash Area in the community is being explored. Sites are being assessed based on City’s Off-leash Policy.

Operational Issues:

  • Changes to facility access and maintenance will not be included in this project, but are currently being reviewed by Parks Operations staff to determine what actions or service improvements should be taken. Examples of operational issues include:
    • Maintenance and operating hours of the park’s washrooms
    • Maintenance of the existing sport facilities including the rink, skate trail, baseball diamond, and soccer field
    • Maintenance of the parking lot
    • Park lighting
    • Cleanliness throughout the park
