Waterloo Park

Project background

Silver Lake improvements

In 2018, a Class Environmental Assessment Study was completed on Waterloo Park - Silver Lake and Laurel Creek to determine the preferred rehabilitation option. The environmental assessment recommended improvements to Laurel Creek upstream of Silver Lake and improvements to Silver Lake. A portion of Waterloo Park is also being reconstructed as part of the overall project.

Channel improvements along Laurel Creek from the LRT tracks to University Avenue will be done to improve fish habitat, terrestrial ecology, the vegetative community and to reduce erosion. Silver Lake improvements will include removal of the accumulated sediment, reconfiguration of the shoreline and construction of a new upstream lake cell. Waterloo Park improvements will include new walkways, lighting, amenities, features of interest and improved pedestrian circulation. For more information, view the presentation boards used at the March 6, 2019 public information centre.

The project team invited the public to view and comment on the drawings being presented as part of the detailed design of the project on Sept. 26, 2019. Landscape plans were also presented at this information centre. This was the second public information centre for this project. This map shows the extent and location of the work being illustrated in the detailed design phase:
