In alignment with the Town of Okotoks strategic direction to provide Quality Infrastructure and a Healthy and Safe Community, Tillotson Park will receive playground upgrades.  

The construction, which is expected to begin in late-July and take several weeks (weather permitting), will include installing new playground equipment and a swing bay as shown below.

Construction updates will be available on this page once the project is underway.

 

Background
Play Equipment Upgrades in Cimarron Meadows - Tillotson Park

In keeping with the Town of Okotoks strategic direction to provide ‘Quality Infrastructure’ and a Healthy and Safe Community’, Tillotson Park (46 Cimarron Meadows Way - see image below) is scheduled to receive playground upgrades.  The Town sought resident input on the type of components and the desired age range preference for the equipment at an open house in late March.  Information gathered will be utilized to develop criteria for purchasing the new equipment.  To review resident input, click the button below.

WHAT WE HEARD REPORT 

Once construction commences, for the safety of the children, the playground will remain closed until all components, including the safety surfacing are re-installed.

Playground upgrades typically include the removal of the existing play equipment and replacement with new equipment that meets current CSA (Canadian Safety Association) safety standards. The safety surfacing (pea gravel) would also be replaced.  The overall size and location of the playground is intended to remain the same; however, the footprint is very small at this site, and additional stand-alone play component(s) may be desirable elsewhere on site.

Project updates will be available on this page or by contacting Parks at 403-938-8958.

Triangle Park Playground Equipment Removal

In keeping with the Town of Okotoks strategic direction to provide ‘Quality Infrastructure’ and a Healthy and Safe Community, Triangle Park (34 North Railway) playground equipment is scheduled to be removed May 13-17, 2019, weather permitting, due to aging equipment and future downtown revitalization projects.  During the work, the park will be closed.  Please use caution in the area.  Following the playground removal, an interim play structure will be installed until a final redevelopment plan is drafted to incorporate this park space.  Public participation will take place once any plans are identified.  

Community Garden at Kadey Park - 9 Cimarron Grove Way

Okotoks Town Council approved a new community garden on the south side of Okotoks during the regular meeting, April 22.  The garden is expected to be open in time for spring of 2020.  Details about the project, including how you can reserve a garden plot, will be available soon!
