The City is improving the playground in Greenwood Park. These improvements are part of an ongoing city-wide program to ensure playgrounds provide safe and accessible fun for many years to come.

  • June to July 2023: Community engagement (online survey)
  • August to December 2023: Detailed design and hire a construction team
  • Spring 2024: Construction starts
  • Fall 2024: Construction complete, playground reopens

The timeline is subject to change.

Online Survey

June 2023

An online survey will be posted on this page in June. The survey will ask for your feedback and preferences on multiple playground options. The design team will use the community feedback collected in this survey to develop a single playground design.

The results of the survey will also be posted on this page.

Greenwood Park Playground is located at 150 Greenwood Ave. on the north side of the park.

The playground currently includes:

  • Two swing sets with:
    • Three swings for ages two to five
    • Two swings for ages five and up
    • One accessible swing
  • A junior climbing structure (with roof) and small double slide
  • A senior climbing structure (with roof), spiral slide, monkey bar and chin up bar
  • A teeter totter
  • Two small spring toys
  • Four benches
  • Sand under all play areas

The playground will be redesigned using feedback from the community. The redesigned playground is proposed to include:

  • Playground equipment for ages two to 12
  • Additional seating
  • Engineered wood fibre playground surfacing
  • Accessible play equipment and an accessible pathway connecting to the playground area

The existing sandbox, water bottle filler and shade structure will remain as-is.

Improvements will only be made in the general playground area. This will not include any new water or lighting features or improvements to other areas of the park.
