Work is in progress to replace the roof on the washroom building in Cadboro-Gyro Park. Washrooms will remain open and construction zone will be well marked. Work should be done by the end of February.
Enjoy two new gravel trails in Glanford Park [PDF - 139 KB] - this trail work came from the approved concept plan [PDF - 4.7 MB]. These trails connect the asphalt parking lot on Kenneth Avenue to the gravel parking lot along Agnes Street and tie into the main park pathway. Additional park improvements will include tree planting along the trails and a new seating area where the pathways connect to the existing park pathway.
The new benches have been installed and are ready to enjoy soon!
Work begins February 6 on renovating the parking area between Dysart and Austin on Gorge Rd W. The lot will be closed for a couple of weeks during the upgrades. Please find alternate parking during this period when using Gorge Waterway Park.
Our team is trying to mitigate trail erosion on the Glendenning, Harrop and South Ridge trails. Check out the new stairs and trail work on South Ridge and Harrop! We ask parks visitors to always use the formal park trails in Mount Douglas Park to help protect this natural area. We do have equipment accessing these trails and ask park users to use caution in the work areas. Please stay on the designated trails to help reduce erosion in the park.
The Hampton Park [PDF - 122 KB] tennis courts are getting a refresh! Temporary lines on the concrete are ready to enable both tennis and pickleball court play. The new acrylic surface will be ready come spring, so for now, play is good to go on the bare cement surface.
We also will be installing new pathways around the park to make the trek from the lower to upper soccer fields a bit easier! Check out where other courts are should you need to play elsewhere during construction.
