The City is planning improvements to the playground in Longwood Park. These improvements are part of an ongoing city-wide program to ensure our playgrounds provide safe and accessible fun for many years to come!

Project Timeline

  • Summer 2021: Hire a design consultant
  • Late Fall 2021: Design and community engagement (online survey)
  • January to March 2022: Detailed design and hire a construction team
  • Spring 2022: Construction begins
  • Summer 2022: Playground reopens

The timeline is subject to change.

Longwood Park Playground is located on the north side of Longwood Drive, at the centre of the park.

The playground currently includes:

  • Two swing sets with:
    • Two swings for ages two to five
    • Two swings for ages five and up
  • A multi-seater see-saw
  • A climbing play structure with:
    • Multi-level handlebars (purple)
    • A hand glider
    • Platforms
  • A climbing structure with:
    • A rope
    • Stepping features (yellow)
    • Handle bars at the top (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)
  • A bench
  • 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.

Online Survey

Late Fall 2021

An online survey will be posted on this web page in the fall. The survey will ask for your feedback and preferences on multiple playground options. The design team will use the community feedback collected in this survey to develop a single playground design.
