The new Kingsmeade Park is located in the Kingswood neighbourhood along Kingswood Boulevard.

The City gathered input from the community in 2020 and a concept design for Kingsmeade Park was completed.

In February 2021, a site amenities survey was conducted to help finalize the park design. You can find the final design on the side under key documents or in the video below.

The park will have a playground area, walking trails with interactive play elements, a boarded rink, multi-sport court area, open spaces for unstructured play, a social ice surface, an all-season social hub, and various trees and shrubs to complete the landscaped area. We are excited to move to construction in late Spring with the anticipation of some park amenities opening by the end of 2021.

This short video provided will give you an overview of the park design and introduce you to the Kingsmeade Park Playground options that were submitted through our playground tender process. A survey on the playground was open from April 15-22, 2021 to gather public feedback on possible designs.

We thank everyone who submitted their thoughts and ideas through the survey, and remember to click the Stay Informed button to the right to sign up for project updates.

    Overwhelming support for a nature-themed playground with natural colours and nature-inspired play structures such as trees, logs and rocks

    The desire to incorporate pour-in-place rubber surfacing for the playground

    Support to include the proposed interactive trail elements

    Support for a variety of vegetation to keep the area natural, provide some colour and provide some protection from the wind

    The full survey results are available in the What We Heard report located on the right side of this page under key documents. The information from the survey will be used to finalize the detailed design for Kingsmeade Park.
