Online Survey

From November 1 to December 15, 2021, feedback on the playground improvements was collected in an online survey. The survey received 318 responses, which included input from 735 participants. Option B was the preferred design (45 per cent), with 53 per cent of respondents indicating they would not change anything about the design and like it as-is.

Based on community feedback, the playground design has been revised to include a sensory panel. Download the survey summary report for more information.
