Update: March 25, 2020

Thank you to everyone who participated in the public consultation in 2019 for Leitrim Parks 2 and 9. The project team is proceeding to make the following changes to the park designs in response to the comments that were received:

  • Leitrim Park 2
    • The parking area will be expanded from 24 to 31 parking spaces
    • Tennis/pickleball court lighting will be added
    • The playground area will be shifted to the northwest to increase the setback from Longworth Avenue and to provide visibility from the parking area.
    • The potential to provide additional junior playground equipment will be considered further during the detail design phase.
    • Two additional picnic tables will be provided
  • Leitrim Park 9
    • A saucer swing will be added to the playground
