New Park Development in West Brant Neighbourhood 

The City of Brantford Parks & Recreation department is excited to share that a new park will be coming soon in West Brant. Located at the corner of Blackburn Drive and Ferrier Lane, next to St. Basil Catholic Elementary/Walter Gretzky Elementary school, this new park will provide a fun place for the entire neighborhood to enjoy.

This park space is currently an open grass area approximately 4.15 acres in size and includes an intermediate soccer field that has been programmed by Parks & Recreation since the green space became available for recreational use. The remaining area available for development is approximately 1 acre and is currently in the preliminary stages of design so we need your input and feedback!

This new park development will include play elements including a junior play structure (ages 2-5), a senior play structure (ages 5-12), a set of swings, benches, lots of new trees and plantings, a half-court for basketball and other activities and many more fun park features. Each play surface will be fully accessible with paved pathways throughout the park for all park-goers to enjoy. The new park will blend well with the existing soccer field.
