Published on: 2021/06/07 - in Releases

RELEASE — East-enders: Join an online engagement session for an introduction to a new park and trail system being developed on Waterside Way in the Pittsburgh District overlooking the Cataraqui River.

The project will be introduced at an hour-long online session at 6 p.m. on June 16. City staff will be available to answer questions. Register to join the information session.

If you wish to follow along but don’t expect to ask questions you can do so on the City’s YouTube channel where the meeting will be closed-captioned and live-streamed.

About the Proposed Park

The new .72 hectare (1.78 acres) park will include:

  • a mid-sized playground.
  • an open lawn/play field.
  • pedestrian pathways with seating

About the Proposed Trails

The proposed trails run through an environmentally protected wooded area that buffers the subdivision from the river. They are to be natural, of modest scale and will connect to the new park. A lookout site that is to be naturalistic in design, is proposed for the water’s edge as part of the trail plan.

For any enquiries about the proposed development or to provide accessibility feedback related to the development please contact (in accordance with Ontario Regulation 191/11).
