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 Parks and Open Spaces Department had undertaken multiple public consultations for this project. And 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.
The existing ball diamond will be removed to make room for the new park features.
The design phase of this project has started and is anticipated to complete in 2021.
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.
