Online Feedback Sought on Playground Improvements at Local Parks

Published on: 2021/09/01 - in News

The City is inviting residents to provide input on proposed updates to O’Connor Park, La Salle Park and the north playground at Lake Ontario Park by attending an interactive virtual meeting.

On that meeting, staff will introduce the projects and the featured improvements, which include replaceming aging play equipment, installating new safety surfacing, accessible bench seating, and new pathway(s) to the playground equipment.

There will be two options provided for each playground and community members will be asked to select their preferred option during the engagement session and through Get Involved Kingston, the City’s online public engagement platform.

The City is offering a variety of ways for residents to offer feedback on the playgrounds:
