Weather permitting, construction is anticipated to begin on Monday November 1, 2021 with an estimated project completion date of May 20, 2022 (subject to material availability).

This project will be done in two phases and will have the following work completed:

Phase 1 – November 2021

Remove the existing play structure and base and prepare subgrade for the installation of:

  • a concrete playground curb including accessible curb cuts
  • perforated drainage pipe 
  • a 1.8 metre wide asphalt pathway
  • bench
  • waste receptacle 
  • armour stone block seating
  • trees
  • final grading

You can see the plan for the work below.

Phase 2 – Spring 2022

Phase 2 will see the supply and install of the new play structure followed by the installation of the playground base (engineered wood fibre).

The municipality has contracted Henderson Recreation Equipment Ltd. for the new play structure. See the attached document below for images and a site plan.
