Alexandra Park expansion

Alexandra Park is located at 47 Alexandra Avenue, a very short distance to uptown Waterloo. It is bounded by Alexandra Avenue to the north, William Street West to the south and residential development to the east and west. It is the uptown west neighbourhood’s primary neighbourhood park.

In 2017, the city purchased 46 and 48/50 William Street West properties with the intent to expand the park (please see map for area details). Existing buildings on these properties were demolished in 2018 and the city is now in the process of redesigning and rebuilding the park. The park redesign will include the existing park site as well as the additional new space.

The expansion of Alexandra Park offers a unique opportunity to re-imagine an urban park in the heart of one of Waterloo’s historic neighbourhoods.

Design concept review – follow up

Thank you to everyone who came out to the open house on Oct. 28 or provided feedback for the design. We had an amazing turn out with approximately 100 participants at the event! Over 50 people provided written feedback on the design concepts. We are no longer accepting feedback for this stage of the project, but welcome you to review the presentation boards found in the document library.

Next Steps

Now that feedback has been collected, the landscape architectural design consultant, PLANT Architect Inc., will review comments provided by members of the public to develop a final design concept for Alexandra Park. Stay tuned for a final concept presentation by signing up for project updates in the toolbar on the right hand side of this page.

This project is part of our 2019-2022 strategic plan, specifically: Healthy community and resilient neighbourhoods. To learn more about our strategic plan, visit waterloo.ca/strategicplan.

The City of Waterloo is committed to creating interesting and engaging public spaces. As a component of this project, the city will be including a public art element. Public art can tell the story of the neighbourhood, contribute to a sense of place and/or act as a functional element in the park (e.g., tables, seating, lighting, etc.). How would you like to see public art integrated into Alexandra Park?
