Playground replacement

We are replacing the playground in Kiwanis Park and we want your help! Share what you (and your kids!) would like to see in the playground by filling out our survey by May 31.

Your input will help us understand what elements you would like to see in the playground so that designs can be developed this summer. We'll come back to you later in the summer with design proposals so that you can tell us which one you prefer. Staff will also evaluate the designs to make sure that they meet our standards for safety, for example.  

The current playground will stay open all summer, and we're set to open the new playground in the spring of 2019. 

For more information, contact us at 519-741-2502 during the fall, winter and spring.

Kiwanis Pool

After being closed for renovations last season, Kiwanis Pool is expected to reopen this June! Join us on Neighbours Day, Saturday, June 9, for a reopening ceremony along with a celebration in Kiwanis Park. There will be free admission to the park and, as long as the weather cooperates, free swimming too!

Hundreds of residents visit Kiwanis Park pool daily during the summer months to enjoy the serene outdoor space, including summer camp programs from the park and from surrounding areas. In addition to the lake-like design, the new pool now has a spray feature so that even the youngest park visitors has a place to cool off.
