This timeline is subject to change.

The park and playground design will be developed through consultation with the community.
The City collected feedback from community members on the high-level, preliminary layouts. The results will be used to inform the development of more detailed design options for the park and playground. The survey closed on July 27, 2020.
Findings from the survey will be posted to the website when they are available.
A design team has been hired to lead the design development and consultation process. They have developed a site analysis report. Based on this report and the feedback from the January 2020 online survey, they have produced three high-level preliminary layout options for the park. These contain different ideas for play and passive recreation areas, pathways and buffer zones.
The three high-level, preliminary layouts follow. The City is collected feedback on these layouts through an online survey, which closed July 27, 2020.
