We are building a new municipal parkette at 176 Broadway Ave. (formerly 174-180 Broadway Ave.), near Mount Pleasant Road and Broadway Avenue. The parkette design will be developed in consultation with the community. Budget, site limitations and operational requirements will also be considered throughout the design development process.

A visioning survey was launched in 2021 to gather preliminary thoughts and ideas about the type of features people would like to see and activities they would like to do at the new parkette.

The feedback received helped the project team to determine the primary scope of features for the parkette, which include:

  • Trees and planting areas
  • Open lawn areas for passive recreation
  • Playspace (ages two to 12)
  • Seating
  • Pathways
  • Lighting
