Update on Westwood Park construction

We would like to express our sincere regret for the delay in the reconstruction of Westwood Park. We recognize that many of you are feeling frustrated. We are committed to providing and maintaining quality park space for our residents, and we understand the impact this delay may have on those who were looking forward to using the park this summer.

We understand that these delays may be disappointing, but we are confident that the upgrades will benefit the community in the long-term. The extra time and effort will result in an improved park space that will be enjoyed for years to come. The upgrades include new playground equipment, adding accessibility upgrades, a new shade sail, new bench and table seating, a paved area for painted games, a basketball half court, informal area for playing cricket and other games, and new bicycle racks. The new play equipment will provide various play experiences for children of all ages, while the accessibility upgrades will make the park more inclusive for all.

We are doing everything possible to complete the park as soon as possible. We will continue to provide updates on the progress and will announce a new opening date as soon as it is available.
