A new project is in the works in Kingston’s west end. The City of Kingston is building a new community park and planning a future trail system in the new west end subdivision known as Cataraqui West or Woodhaven.
According to a release from the City, residents are invited to attend an interactive virtual meeting where staff will introduce the project, share potential designs, and receive input about the proposed park features.
“This is the largest brand-new park in Kingston in more than two decades. It will be a wonderful addition not just for its neighbours, but for our entire city,” said Neal Unsworth, Manager, Parks and Shoreline.
The new park is 14 acres and is expected to include sports fields, courts, playground equipment, a splash pad and will connect to future nature trails, the City stated.
The City said that residents are invited to offer feedback on the Cataraqui West Community Park and Trail Master Plan in the following ways:
- Register to participate in the virtual engagement session to be held on Wednesday, Jul. 13, 2022, at 6 p.m. Registrants will receive a confirmation email with a link to the webinar.
- Watch the virtual engagement session on the City of Kingston YouTube channel. The meeting will be closed captioned and live-streamed.
- Drop in at the INVISTA Centre on July 14 from 4 to 6 p.m. to view a display of the proposed plans, ask questions and share your feedback.
