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 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.

Consultation is now closed for this project.

Thanks to everyone who participated in our public consultation! The team will be working throughout the summer developing three design options for the park based on the results of the survey and the public workshop held in June, 2019. These design options will be brought back to the community in September, 2019 for evaluation and to determine a preferred option. Stay tuned!

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?
