Benefits

Features of the park site included:

  • Decorative plaza with electrical conduit to support smaller tourneys and events
  • Grass areas for picnicking and field viewing
  • An irrigated, sand-based, full-size, natural grass field (100 by 60 metres large)
  • Pathways circling the field connect the school and can connect with future trails identified in the Master Trail Plan in the adjacent areas

Two playground spaces and sport courts by School District 43 on the adjacent elementary school property are designed to provide full public access during after school hours. The joint-use agreement with School District 43 also enables the City to benefit from school site amenities, including the parking lot, exterior access washroom, and recreational space within the school building.
