The new Natal Park Playground is open!

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

Project Timeline

  • September 2019: Community engagement, survey to collect feedback on playground options
  • 2020: Detailed design and hire construction team
  • Spring 2021: Begin construction
  • Summer 2021: Playground reopens

The timeline is subject to change.

Natal Park Playground is located at 110 Natal Ave., on the north side of Natal Park.

The playground currently includes:

  • One swing set with:
    • Two swings for ages two to five
    • Two swings for ages five and up
  • Two medium-sized slides (red and blue structure)
  • A junior climbing structure (blue structure)
  • Sand under all play areas

The playground is designed based on 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
  • Additional seating
  • Cedar weave playground surfacing (fibres knit together to form a soft, firm and accessible surface)
  • New drinking fountain in a new location

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