McBride Park renewal: past updates

September 2016

The new playground opens.

April 2016

After gaining public feedback from the open house held in summer 2015, we decided to expand the size of the renovated playground and add new features.

New features

  • A disc swing
  • Toddler swings
  • Climbing apparatuses
  • A sand play area
  • A new water fountain

Construction of the new playground will be completed in the summer of 2016, and we look forward to celebrating opening day with you.

June 2015

We asked what you thought of the preliminary plans in an online questionnaire from June 20 to July 3. Thank you to everyone who completed the questionnaire. Your feedback will help refine the plans to renew the park. We're now analyzing the feedback we received.

We held an open house on June 20 for you to learn about the proposed playground design concept, proposed community garden, and potential park expansion. Attendees browsed the information displays while enjoying refreshments and watching performances by McBride Park Field House artists-in-residence.
