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

The Town is working on a new design for Philips Kozaroff Park - located at 25 Park Road within the Macedonian Village neighbourhood.

The park is expected to be tendered this spring. Construction is anticipated to begin in September 2022 and be completed in November 2022.

How can I get involved?

Between Monday, April 11 and Friday, May 2 complete a survey to share feedback on the playground design and to provide general comments on the proposed project.

Next Steps

Feedback collected will help to inform the playground design.

Park features and amenities included in the proposed design include:

  • Playground with engineered wood fibre surfacing
  • Sand play area
  • Basketball court resurfacing
  • Walking path with bench rest area

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

Local Parks such as Philips-Kozaroff Park 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.
