Phase 1: Proposed Design

In winter 2022, the City collected feedback on the proposed design for the new park, including park amenities and features, to help inform the development of a preferred design. Feedback was collected through a virtual community meeting and an online survey.

Online Survey

From February 7 to February 27, 2022, feedback on the proposed design for the new park was collected in an online survey. The survey received 1,400 responses, which included feedback from 2,765 participants of various ages.

  • A majority of respondents (81 per cent) live between 500 metres to 3 km from the park location.
  • Half of respondents (49 per cent) were satisfied with the proposed layout.
  • A majority of respondents (64 per cent) felt that there was the right balance between paved surfaces and green space in the proposed design.
Virtual Community Meeting

On February 7, 2022, City staff and the local Councillor’s Office hosted a virtual community meeting to share the proposed design for the new park. Community members were invited to learn more about the project, see the concept design and site furniture options for the new park, and share their questions and thoughts through a virtual question-and-answer session. 15 community members attended, as well as the local Councillor.
