Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Town is working on improving D’Hillier Park to meet current standards – D’Hillier Park is located at 99 McQuay Blvd. As a large District Park, it has multiple access points and amenities, including two separate playground areas. D’Hillier Park Improvements will be focused on the north playground, closest to Resolute Crescent.

How can I get involved?

Between July 10 and July 31 view the proposed conceptual park plan and complete a survey to share feedback on your preferred playground equipment and to provide general comments on the proposed project.

Next Steps

Feedback collected will help to inform the playground design and proposed project.

Park features and amenities included in the proposed design include:

  • Replacing and redesigning the playground area with new equipment, benches and engineered wood fibre playground surfacing
  • Asphalt resurfacing of the existing parking lot and driveway
  • Installing replacement LED lighting for tennis courts to meet usage demand

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 like D'Hillier 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 sports user groups rely on District Parks to undertake the various sports programming for youth minor sports across the community.

Local Parks 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, walkways and in some cases splash pads. Smaller Parkettes normally contain playgrounds, seating areas and walkways.

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