In order to meet future demand and address much needed upgrades to the original station, we are building a new pumping station in Willowlake Park. We are also reconstructing Old Mill Road between Pinnacle and the Old Mill Road bridge.

The project will include three major parts.

  • Construction of the new station
  • Reconstruction of Old Mill Road
  • Decommissioning and demolition of the old station

It will be necessary to close Old Mill Road and portions of Willowlake Park at times during this project. Trails through Willowlake Park will remain open during construction. You will be notified in advance of any road closures.

    Hello, will the park (formerly baseball diamond), playground structures and original trail alignment be reconstructed following completion of the pumping station and associated works? Does the City have any plans to improve the amenities in the park (e.g., new playground structure, soccer pitch and baseball diamond)? With thanks, Sal

    Sal Spitale asked about 1 month ago

    Thank-you for reaching out.  We're starting the restoration of the park now.  The playground structure will remain, the swing set will be reinstalled, and the field will get new turf.  Under this project, there are no plans for new amenities in this park.

    The trail alignment is currently being reviewed to determine if we utilize the new alignment, revert back to the original, or consider keeping both.

    Can you have the swings reinstalled now? Our kids really miss playing on them.

    Mill Parker asked 4 months ago

    Because of where the swings will be relocated to, there is just no opportunity to safely get them installed temporarily.  We are currently tracking well with the schedule, but there is so much that we can't control right now that I can't commit to a time that they'll be reinstated.  Sorry.
