Online Survey

Feedback on multiple playground design options was collected in an online survey from April 18 to May 9. The survey received a total of 204 responses.

A summary of the survey results will be posted on this page.

Lanyard Park Playground is located at Finch Avenue and Weston Road, at the south side of Lanyard Park.

The playground currently includes:

  • Two swing sets with:
    • Two swings for ages two to five
    • Two swings for ages five and up
  • A medium sized slide
  • A junior climbing structure and double slide
  • Sand under all play areas

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

  • Playground equipment for ages two to 12
  • Rubberized playground surfacing
  • Accessible play equipment and accessible surfacing in the playground area. This means that people of all abilities will be able to play at this playground.

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