Update on Alpine Park

Thank you once again for your feedback on the Alpine Park concepts. The project team is working on the final design and will share it on Engage when ready.

Through our ongoing review of park improvement processes, we’ve identified the need for some additional site investigation before we can start construction. Two things are planned:

The first is an archaeological assessment of Alpine Park, which includes drilling in the park. Drilling is scheduled this spring and will take about two days. The archaeology consultant will then write a report. The City of Kitchener and First Nations rights holders will review the report. We will then submit the final report to the Ministry of Heritage Sport Tourism and Culture for approval.

The second is geotechnical fieldwork to inform the construction. This also includes drilling. The geotechnical fieldwork can only happen after we receive approval from the Ministry. We do not know yet when we can schedule this fieldwork.

Access to some park features may be affected at points during both the archaeological and geotechnical fieldwork days.

The impact of all this on the construction timeline is significant, but we will keep you updated as work unfolds.
