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.

Rainbow Park Playground Before Upgrades

Online Survey Feedback

Thank you to those residents who took the time to fill out the online survey with their thoughts about the playground at Rainbow Park.

We will be proceeding with a playground design and a sportcourt upgrade. The feedback we received will be helpful in informing the design of both. Over the next few months we will be working with a playground supplier to come up a new layout with a fun and challenging design.

We will be posting a preliminary design on the website in early 2018.
