Cedarland Park Renovation Project
Three possible options for the new play area at Cedarland Park were presented to area residents in a letter sent out on February 28, 2013 and outlined on the CIty's website. Area residents were also invited to attend a Public Information Session & Presentation on March 20, 2013 at Cedarland Public Elementary School where they were provided the opportunity to both learn about the proposed upcoming park renovations and express their preference for the new play area location. Residents were also directed residents to an online survey where they could further share their concerns and thoughts regarding the renovations. In addition to the information session and online survey, staff also contacted and consulted with the two area schools and their parent councils (Cedarland Public Elementary School, St. Leo Catholic Elementary School), and the new neighbourhood association. As a result of this consultation, it was determined that Option A is the preferred option; play area construction is anticipated to begin after the 2013 softball season ends with work completion anticipated by September 2013.
Preferred Play Area Location:
- Option A (Blue - 54%)- in place of the existing baseball diamond
- Option B (Red - 17%) ‐ in the existing playground area
- Option C (Green - 29%) ‐ near the soccer field
Existing Play Area Description:
The playground equipment located within Cedarland Park has been identified for replacement. Installed in the mid to late 1990s, it includes one swing set with 2 seats for toddlers and 2 for older children, and a play unit with slides and climbers. The current play structure is appropriate for users aged 5 to 12 years. Our thoughts are to replace the existing play equipment with a new structure for a similar age range/group and to replace the swings. All old equipment will be removed. The new park playground will be constructed during the summer of 2013.
New Play Area Description:
New playground areas are designed to be more inclusive and typically feature more ground play components, wood fiber resilient surfacing, and direct pathway access. These designs have been developed to reflect input received from meetings with the neighbourhood association, school parent associations, as well as ideas collected from students during playground design workshops held at Cedarland Public Elementary School (grades 3 to 6) and St. Leo Catholic Elementary School (grades 2 to 4). Other improvements slated for the park include benches, picnic tables, numerous trees, planting beds, a sand play area, and a quiet natural area (depending on construction costs/budget limitations).
