Shape your park network: Kinzie Oaten and Idlewood

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link


We are taking a new approach to upgrading or improving neighbourhood parks and playgrounds. This approach looks at clusters of neighbourhood parks that are close to one another and considers them as part of a ‘parks network’. Instead of upgrading one park at a time, we will make changes across the whole network. This way, we can better serve the community by building a variety of features across the greater neighbourhood.

In the next two years we plan to upgrade the park network across Centreville Chicopee and Stanley Park neighbourhoods. We will also connect the park network upgrades with those happening at Centreville Chicopee Community Centre.

Kinzie Park, Oaten Park and Idlewood Park are part of this park network. Maps of each of the parks in this network can be found in the Photos section.

  • CLOSED: We are no longer accepting contributions to this survey.

    Help us create new designs for this park network! This survey will take 10 minutes to answer. 

    Tell us how you are using the parks now, how you might like to use them in future, and what features are most important to you. At this point, we are not making specific decisions on what will go into the parks exactly. We are looking for what general direction to head in, so our draft designs are relevant to you. You will get a chance to consider those drafts and share your feedback when they are ready. Survey closes March 14, 2022.
