The new park at 1 Defries St will be about the size of a basketball court and will front Labatt Avenue and Defries Street. A portion of the park will be located on the existing Labatt Avenue right of way, which will be closed to vehicles. The park will be accessible and include various amenities and seating areas. A dogs off-leash area will not be included in the design due to the park’s limited size.

The park design will evolve through consultation with nearby schools, area residents and the general public in order to design a space that meets the needs of the growing community.
