We have updated the home page for the project. If you are looking for information that was up here previously, you can find it below:
Alpine Park is an existing park space in the Alpine neighbourhood that has a small wooded area, play equipment and is linked to both a trail network and two adjacent school properties. The wooded area is an incredible asset to this park space and a focal point within the neighbourhood. Through this project, it is anticipated that updates to the existing park space will be explored along with the addition of a formal trail through the woods to mitigate impacts from over-use.
As part of this park renewal project, some potential opportunities could include new play features, accessibility upgrades, tree management in the woodlot, and better connections to the existing trail network and school areas, including the baseball diamond. There has also been shown interest in a community garden space and permanent cooking area/barbecue.
The project team is currently seeking input on how the Alpine Park space is currently used as well as how the park could better support the community into the future. We need your input to help inform the process and generate design ideas. Below and in the links to the right, please find an existing conditions plan of the park along with some recent site photographs for your reference. We also encourage you to fill out the “Ideas” board below with any thoughts or ideas for the park space.
Have a question? We know people are tired of virtual meetings but are perhaps not yet comfortable with in person events, so we're doing this consultation a different way. From August 3 to 6 we will host an online forum right here on this page. The project team will be closely monitoring this forum during business hours that week, answering your questions in real time. Visit this page anytime that week to ask questions, make comments and learn more about the Alpine Park project.
