Rainbow Park Playground Replacement

View of Rainbow Park playground equipment before proposed updates for 2018.

Have you ever visited Rainbow Park [PDF - 178 KB]? It is located south of McKenzie Avenue next to the McKenzie Pat Bay Highway interchange. This small neighbourhood park features open green space, a playground, a sportcourt (with half basketball and half hockey) and access to the Douglas Street Multi-use Connector Trail along the western edge of the park.

We are planning to replace the playground at Rainbow Park in 2018. The existing play equipment is from 1994 and is up for upgrading based on playground replacement criteria. The criteria assessments include age, condition, safety/design issues, accessibly, drainage and location.

Check out the proposed playground equipment for Rainbow Park based on the feedback we received from the online survey. We have proposed two playground areas with separate 2-5 year old and 5-12 year old play equipment.
