The City is improving Silver Creek Park. The improvements will provide new park amenities for the community to enjoy for years to come!
The timeline is subject to change.
The ball diamond improvements, which include a new backstop fence, bleachers and dugouts, will take place from March to June 2023. During this time, there will be fencing in areas adjacent to the ball diamond. These improvements are supported by the Martingrove Baseball Association and Jays Care Foundation.
The park improvements were partially completed and the park opened to the public. The group swing and the shade structure will be installed in spring 2023.
Construction of the park improvements will start in October 2022. Site 1, which includes the area around the existing playground and path to the parking lot, and Site 2 which includes the southeast portion of the park off of Waterford Drive will be closed for construction from October to December 2022. Refer to the site map in the Design section.
Due to supply chain challenges, the new park swing will be installed in spring 2023, after the main construction period. During the three week swing installation period, the west side of the playground (where the swing will be installed) and the path to the parking lot will be closed to the public.
Feedback on the preferences for the proposed improvements to the park was collected in an online survey from October 26 to November 9, 2021. The survey received a total of 204 responses, which included feedback from 419 participants of various ages.
