City Wants Your Ideas for the Wheathill Street Community Park

Published on: 2019/04/13 - in News

A new 1.5 hectare park is being planned on Wheathill Street in the new West Village subdivision, and the City is looking for ideas on the proposed design.

Created in partnership with the French schools Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est (CECCE) and Conseil des écoles publiques de l’Est de l’Ontario (CEPEO), the park will be adjacent to the future French secondary school and is planned to allow for ‘a fluid connection between the sites’.

“This community park is being built in collaboration with CECCE and CEPEO as the new secondary school site is developed,” said Neal Unsworth, manager, parks development. “The new park and subdivision is near Taylor-Kidd Boulevard and not far from the existing Waterloo Village subdivision.”

Members of the public can offer up their ideas for the new park and how it should connect to the future secondary school at an upcoming open house.

The event is being held in the Rona Room at the INVISTA Centre (1350 Gardiners Rd.) on Wednesday, April 24 from 6pm to 9pm where the City will also be presenting information on the potential future name of the park.

Accessibility-related feedback for the new community park online can also be submitted online at between April 24 and May 16, 2019 (in accordance with Ontario Regulation 191/11).
