Online Survey

From December 11, 2023, to January 7, 2024, feedback on multiple playground design options was collected in an online survey. The survey was promoted through paid social media ads, outreach to nearby schools, the local Councillor’s office, on-site signage, and on this page. The survey received a total of 149 responses.

The design team will use this feedback to refine a final design. The final design will be available on this page in Spring 2024.
