Alexander Park Playground Preliminary Consultation

July 22nd, 2018 Comments off

The City of Ottawa is commencing preliminary consultation on park improvements for Alexander Park at 960 Silver Street.

Consultation and design will take place in 2018 and construction is proposed for 2019.

There is no intention of removing the existing playground components at this time and in order to retain land for a possible building expansion in the future; any new equipment is proposed to be located in the northeast portion of the park as shown in yellow in the aerial photo.

Please take a few minutes to complete a survey regarding park improvements. The City will be taking the survey results into consideration during the planning and design process for the park. Further public consultation will be led by Councillor Brockington and will occur after concept plans and illustrations have been prepared for the park (likely in November or December 2018).

The on-line survey may be completed up until July 31, 2018 and is available at Alexander Park Survey 

If you would prefer a paper copy of the survey or if you have specific comments or questions regarding the proposed park, please contact:
