Project Updates

January 22, 2020

Next steps include detailed design development which will take us the rest of 2020 to complete, and tendering of the work would likely be over the winter into 2021.  Because the park site works cannot begin until the adjacent roads and servicing to the park are complete, timing for the park tender and for park construction is dependent on TCHC’s timing on the development adjacent the park. At this time, we anticipate on site park works to begin sometime in 2022, dependant on the timing of the adjacent road and servicing works.

Public Consultations

January 22, 2020: Public Meeting

The Project team presented residents with the general plan for the park and discussed the playground and other play options that residents would like included. Swings, slides, separate junior and senior structures, were all things residents asked us to consider in the playground design. Seating throughout the park was also a big priority for residents which we are to consider in the detailed design stage as we move forward.

April 24, 2019: Public Meeting

The Project Team was invited to give a 45-minute presentation at a community meeting for the Public Art Plan. Approximately 45 members of the public attended this event that included a brief presentation and activity. The favoured park features at this meeting were seating areas, plantings and walkways.

Lawrence Heights Triangular Park Conceptual Plan

The map shows an illustration of Triangular Park from an aerial view. The park is bordered by Green Gardens Boulevard, Lawrence Heights Way, Deep Roots Terrace and Hooyo Terrace. The concept map shows park entrances at all four corners of the park with pathways connecting the entrances at a central point in the park that includes a playground, seating and shade structure. The north east corner of the park features a garden with a garden wall, and the west side of the park features an open green space. Trees, shrubs and other plantings border the park on all sides.
