Brubacher Green is a small urban neighbourhood park that is actively used by the local community. The City is planning updates to this park to better support the function of the space for all park users. Consultants from SHIFT Landscape Architecture have been engaged to lead the redevelopment of this park including conceptual design, final design, and taking the project through to construction completion.

Through the summer of 2021, the design team engaged with the public to understand how the park serves the community and to guide the design. As a starting point for discussion, two concepts were presented to show what was possible in the space. After hearing feedback in person and online, and looking at what is needed to bring the park up to current standards, a final, refined concept has been developed.

Below, we are excited to reveal the final concept for Brubacher Green. Please review the plan along with an overview video, below. More information can also be found through the links on this page, including timelines for next steps, additional documents, and a summary of engagement input.

    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:

    Brubacher Green is a small urban neighbourhood park that is actively used by the local community. The City is planning updates to this park to better support use of the space while introducing new creative play opportunities. Consultants from SHIFT Landscape Architecture have been engaged to lead the redevelopment of this park including conceptual design, final design, and taking the project through to construction completion.

    The design team wants to gain an understanding from you – the community – about the park. As a starting point for discussion, the team has put together two concepts showing what is possible in the space.

    We’d love to hear what’s most important to you. Shape the future of Brubacher Green by sharing your thoughts and feedback on each concept using the survey and “Ideas” board below!

    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 16 to 20 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 Brubacher Green project.
