During the summer of 2021, the design team engaged with the community to gather input on how Shoemaker Greenway Park is currently used as well as how the park can continue to support the community. A summary of that engagement is now available. Based on this initial input, three preliminary conceptual designs have been developed for Shoemaker Greenway Park and are shown below.

These three preliminary concepts are intended to be a starting point for discussion; the final design may be a combination of elements from the concepts or may be a new concept altogether. With the restoration work for the creek, there is an opportunity to reimagine this park as a place to celebrate the watercourse and acknowledge the importance of the creek for the neighbourhood and greater landscape.

We are now reviewing the feedback you shared through the ideas board, survey and November 30 live forum. We will share the final design on this page once it is ready. 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.

Please share your input using the short survey on this page. The design team will also be monitoring the “Ideas” tool, so please share your thoughts, ask questions and make comments to help shape the future of Shoemaker Greenway Park.

Have a question or want more information? On November 30, we will be hosting an online presentation and forum. Please register on Zoom.
