OSHAWA, ONT. — The City of Oshawa has commenced Phase 1 of construction at Glen Stewart Park.
Focused on stabilizing Goodman Creek, Phase 1 of the redevelopment is scheduled to be completed by mid-April 2017, a city release indicates. Work done during Phase 1 will reflect recommendations outlined in the Goodman Creek Channel Improvement Feasibility Study.
"Glen Stewart Park is in need of substantial redevelopment," said Coun. John Aker, chair of the development services committee, in a statement. "This park will become an attractive and safe place to bring our family and enjoy the environment."
The scope of Phase 2 includes the ball diamond, park improvements to the playground and splash area, the parking lot and pedestrian bridge.
City staff have reviewed feedback from the public on the playground, splash area and parking lot, and are completing the design work. Construction is slated to begin on Phase 2 in late April 2017, with the project expected to be completed by fall 2017.
"Staff have reviewed the feedback provided by residents and are working on the design of the park to include a ball diamond, playground and splash pad," said Coun. Bob Chapman, chair of the community services committee. "I'm looking forward to seeing the transformation of the park once the Phase 1 stabilization work is completed."
