Former Hospital Site Project moving ahead

In June, Town Council endorsed a master plan for the former hospital site lands.

In August, the town’s demolition contractor mobilized on site and started interior demolition. The overall demolition and remediation will take approximately 12 months to complete. Visit the Former Hospital Site Demolition and Remediation page for regular project updates.

Community consultation

Open House

Community Centre and Park Update

Town Hall, 1225 Trafalgar Road

The town held an open house on November 28, 2017 and had an online survey for residents to provide input on design options for the neighbourhood park. We have reviewed all the feedback and would like to follow up with an open house on February 8, where staff will be presenting:

  • design options for this park
  • design options for the open space parcel of land on the southeast corner of the former hospital site
  • a high level concept for the proposed Civic Space in front of the preserved former Oakville Trafalgar High School
  • options for a rejuvenated Wallace Park

Recreation and Culture staff will also provide an update on the progress of the design of the South East Community Centre.

Background

The former site of the Oakville-Trafalgar Memorial Hospital (OTMH) was part of the town's overall South Central Public Lands Study (SCPLS) which reviewed a number of key sites owned by the town in south central Oakville (e.g. surplus school sites, Oakville Arena) and made recommendations about their future use, including recreation uses.

The former site consists of lands on the south side of Macdonald Road between Reynolds Street and Allan Street. The property includes the existing hospital building and the Wyndham Manor Long Term Care Centre.

An overall concept for the redevelopment of the hospital lands including a new community centre, park, potential housing and medical uses was endorsed in principle by Council on April 8, 2013. This concept recognized that a final plan could not be completed until the town took ownership of the site and completed all the required environmental, heritage, building condition and detailed land use studies.

The Former Hospital Site Project is about completing this work over five years (2015 to 2020). The development of the community centre and neighbourhood park opening is scheduled for September 2020.
