Published on: 2021/03/30 - in Releases

RELEASE — Contribute to the proposed updates to the playground in Oakridge Park (*across Sir John A. Blvd from Richardson Stadium). Residents are invited to attend an interactive virtual meeting where staff will introduce the project.

Planned improvements include:

  • Replacing aging play equipment.

Two options for the playground design will be presented and residents will be asked to choose their preferred option. Feedback may be provided at the meeting and/or in an upcoming Get Involved Kingston survey.
