    The final design strikes a balance between, toddler, junior and senior user needs, offering a range of developmentally appropriate activities within the accessible structures.


    Through the public consultation there were some questions regarding the possibility of having larger park features such splash pad elements included as part of this project. Please note that the Town's standard is to include these larger park features within community level parks, where adequate facilities and infrastructure are available, and would not be considered for a park of this size.


    Our anticipated timeline is for park construction to be completed fall 2019.


    Thank you again for your continued support and feedback throughout this process.
