Construction Update

November 15, 2018
The inclusive playground is now open but is mostly snow covered.  Currently, there are still several pieces being completed including the fencing and surfacing at the entrance.  Paving to the washrooms will occur next year, however, if conditions allow, we will place some rubber matting down between the playground and the washrooms in the interim.

A grand opening for the playground will be scheduled for next year, so please check back for updates.

November 1, 2018
Opening Soon!  Thank you for your patience; we're just putting the finishing touches on the playground and will open it as soon as we can!


With input from the parent stakeholder group, we have selected the final design for the playground equipment. Park N Play Designs submitted the winning proposal, and the playground will include four swings, a ramped structure with several accessible components, group see saw, roller slide, and several other inclusive components (see images below)!

With the playground equipment selection finalized, we have scheduled construction to start August 20, weather permitting. This will involve the closure and removal of the existing playground, grading of the site, and the installation of the new playground!  The work is expected to take 3-4 weeks to complete.

Please check back here for more updates, and please watch for and obey any construction signage in the park.
