In Fall 2021, the Town started the detailed design for Whitby's newest local park located on the west side of Coronation Road, south of Taunton Road. The proposed park will help serve a diversity of ages and abilities of the growing community for years to come.

The park is expected to be tendered later this winter and the final design may be adjusted to meet the allocated budget. Park construction is anticipated to begin in spring 2022 and be completed in late summer 2022.

How can I get involved?

Between now and Friday, March 4 complete a survey to share feedback on the playground design.

Next Steps

Feedback collected will help to inform the final park features.

Park features and amenities included in the proposed design include:

  • playground with engineered wood fibre surfacing
  • sand play area
  • shade shelter
  • multi-skills court
  • sports field
  • walking trail with bench rest areas
  • tree planting

Planning Background

The Town has four different Park classifications including Town, District, Local and Parkette; all of which serve a different function and contain different park elements and amenities.

A Town Park has major facilities and contains community centres, arenas, swimming pools and lighted athletic fields and is intended to serve the recreational needs of the whole community.

A District Park is designed to serve the recreational needs of a larger neighbourhood or series of neighbourhoods. They are for primarily active recreational uses including lighted athletic fields, playgrounds, courts and parking areas. Various sport user groups rely on District Parks to undertake the various sports programming for youth minor sports across the community.

Local Parks such as this one and smaller Parkettes are intended to serve the recreational needs of the immediate neighbourhood for active and passive recreational uses. Local Parks contain sports fields, playgrounds, courts and walkways. Smaller Parkettes normally contain playgrounds, seating areas and walkway

The Town's Official Plan (External link) and several Council approved guiding documents help direct the development of our parks. These include the Culture, Parks, Recreation and Open Space Plan (External link) (CPROS) and the Sports Facility Strategy (External link) (SFS). Both of these studies account for trends, demographics, current inventory and service levels.
