Parks & Recreation Improvements

Local parks and recreation spaces are a critical part of creating complete communities. To better serve our growing community, we are always on the lookout for opportunities to expand these public spaces.

This year, John continues working towards new and accessible playground equipment being installed at local parks with projects in Kempford Park and Empress Tot Lot. Last year, we updated numerous parks, including Hendon and Sheppard East Parks.

After many years of construction, the Edithvale Park expansion is also nearing completion. The completed park will include outdoor fitness stations, paths and an observation deck overlooking the wetland area.  Basketball facilities have also been expanded to reduce conflict with community centre parking.

This summer we will be officially opening an expanded Abbotsford Park.

The City is also adding new lockers to the pool deck at Douglas Snow Aquatic Centre to add to user security.
