Charles Simmonds Park construction begins

About the project

Construction of the Charles Simmonds Park Renewal is scheduled to begin in July. The existing playground will be replaced with a more natural one that complements the playgrounds in Belgravia and McKernan. The work will also include adding:

  • an accessible pathway from the NE corner to the NW corner of the park
  • benches and picnic tables
  • gazebo

This summer, visit the Pop-up Community Garden in the park’s southeast corner and enjoy watching the plantings grow. A public engagement event will be held in September, date to be announced.
