This project is to redevelop an existing neighbourhood park, Wallace Park. It is one of a number of parks and open space blocks in relation to the former hospital site. The existing washroom building and ball diamond will be removed. A new building complex, including a washroom building, a mechanical building, and a breezeway in between, will be constructed. Work also includes new electrical, water, sanitary, storm, and natural gas services to the site/new building, reconnection of electrical and water services from new building to existing tennis clubhouse and courts, landscaping and drainage improvements.
The Parks and Open Space department had undertaken multiple public consultations for this project. A preferred concept plan was developed in consultation with local residents and Councillors. Following the Town’s approval of 2020 budget, this project has come into the implementation stage.
In May 2020, the Parks and Open Space department retained a consulting team led by OMC Landscape Architecture to further develop the preferred concept plan. On March 30, 2021, the town held an online public consultation meeting to present the outcome of the conceptual design phase. Based on the residents’ feedback, town staff approved the refined conceptual design and moved the project into the detailed design phase.
The request for tender was released on September 22, and closed on October 27, 2022. Unfortunately, all submissions received exceeded the approved budget available. This project is now deferred until 2023.
OMC Landscape Architecture has been retained as the prime consultant to provide design and contract administration services.
No contractor has been hired at this time.
