Park Rehabilitation and Replacement Program 


Playground Renovations 2017 Spring Update

Construction has begun at Florence Buchanan Park, the first of 5 playground renovations scheduled for this spring. Construction will begin in the next park as the last one finishes up. In the coming weeks, you may see parks staff on site removing existing playground equipment and other elements in the park but don't worry, the new (and WAY better) playground will be installed shortly after construction begins. Be sure to check back here for your weekly update.

Renovation plans include: accessible asphalt pathways, new play structures and swings, accessible wood fibre safety surfacing surrounding new play structures, new plantings, benches, etc.

We are happy to share playground renovation plans and a rendering of the play equipment that is coming to a park near you. Please find a link to each parks’ plans below:

Please note playground installation may vary from plans shown due to budget constraints.

2017 Fall Playground Renovations

The planning process has begun for our 2017 phase of playground replacements and renovations. The three neighbourhood parks in this phase of renovations include:

  • Cameron Heights Park
  • Lynden Hills Park
  • Parsons Park

Community meetings have been completed and Parks & Recreation staff has visited students from grades 1 to 5 at local community schools located near each park. An online survey will soon be available for residents to provide their feedback about these exciting playground renovations. Be sure to check back to this webpage for the link which will be published shortly.

Please check back for updates as this project continues on through the year. Construction is scheduled for Fall 2017.
