The City is improving the playground in Richmond Park as part of an ongoing program to enhance playgrounds and play spaces across the city so that everyone can experience the joys and benefits of play for years to come.

  • Fall 2024: Community engagement (online survey)
  • Winter to Spring 2025: Detailed design and hire a construction team
  • Summer/Fall 2025: Construction starts
  • Winter 2025: Construction complete, playground reopens

The timeline is subject to change.
