Construction of North Park, began with the official ground-breaking ceremony in July 2008. The 79-hectare community park has three distinct areas: the south parcel is located on the west side of Neyagawa Boulevard, north of Dundas Street, and is planned to be completed in three phases. The second area includes portions of the Sixteen Mile Creek valley lands and forms part of the Natural Heritage System. The third "north parcel" will eventually front onto the future William Halton Parkway and is planned to accommodate active sports fields. The current 'active' phase of North Park includes the Sixteen Mile Sports Complex, two lit soccer fields (one with artificial turf) and a leash free area. Open a diagram of North Park.
At this time (April 2019) there is no approved funding for any additional development of the North Park property. Currently, the 10-year capital forecast includes money in the years 2021-2024 but this is subject to annual review and approval by Council. The town has retained the services of the MBTW Group to complete a master plan update for the park. The town is considering partnerships with various local groups who are also providing active recreational programs. The town is also actively working with the Halton District School Board regarding the planned development of their secondary school site, immediately south of the Sixteen Mile Sports Complex.
Future development of the park may include additional soccer fields, cricket pitch, washroom/change room facility, parking facilities, BMX and skateboard facilities, splash pad, playground and other park amenities. Please refer to the master plan.
In 2019, a temporary 15,000 square foot branch library facility will open on the North Park property. Recreational programs will also be run from this location. Future expansion of the Sixteen Mile Community Centre is planned to include an aquatic centre, multiple community rooms, and a permanent branch library
