The City provided the following details about the proposed parks and trails:
The new .72 hectare (1.78 acres) park will include a mid-sized playground, an open lawn/playfield and pedestrian pathways with seating.
The proposed trails run through an environmentally protected wooded area that buffers the subdivision from the river. They are to be natural, of modest scale and will connect to the new park. A lookout site that is to be naturalistic in design is proposed for the water’s edge as part of the trail plan.
For any enquiries about the proposed development or to provide accessibility feedback related to the development please contact [email protected] (in accordance with Ontario Regulation 191/11).
