What we heard from the Winter 2023 survey

It has been a while since we updated you on this project. Thank you for your patience while we slowed down our design process to get this project right. In January 2023, we invited you to complete a survey to help us understand park use and what the park means to the community. Thank you to all who participated and shared their input.

Here is a summary of the results of what we heard. For a more detailed report on what we heard from you, please read the summary: Winter 2023 What We Heard Report

We received 20 surveys. Thank you for sharing your input! Here are some responses you shared:

You described the park as:

  • “An accessible space for sports, recreation and family”
  • “A peaceful, open space to connect with nature”
  • “Trails are useful for connecting neighbourhoods”

You feel comfortable and safe in these parks:

  • “We spend time in the park all year-round”
  • “Love to visit the park alone and with family”
  • “Quiet place to relax”

You have ideas for changes to the parks, including:

  • “Nature studies for students”
  • “More seating could improve accessibility”
  • “Trails are muddy and wet in spring”

What’s Next for Countryside Park?

Your input from the survey is being used to inform concept designs.

Thank you for all your questions. You can find an updated FAQ page with common questions and answers. We look forward to hosting a project open house this year and will share more details soon.
