The city's residents can now use an interactive map of the schematic design plan for the new Northeastern Regional Park as a way to share their feedback.

According to the city, the schematic design plan includes several initiatives including:

  • West: A focus on civic/cultural events in the western area of the park
  • Centre: A large central area that focuses on keeping the natural features of the land and includes trails, trees, meadows, and a storm pond.
  • East: A large portion of the park that focuses on sports fields for active and organized sports, parking, camping, play areas, tennis and pickleball courts and areas for large gatherings, tournaments or festivals.

On Wednesday, November 29, at Genesis Place, The City invited residents to an open house for both collaboration and feedback on the Master Plan.

"The Master Plan is a blueprint for the vision, goals and actionable steps for developing the park. It will cover things like land use, trails, amenities, environmental considerations and even budget constraints," The City stated on its website. 

The draft of the Master Plan will be finished and will be presented to Council for review and approval in January 2024, with the construction of the new park beginning in April and will last till September 2024.
