This project is now closed for input. Thank you for your contributions! A What We Heard report and the final plan will be posted when completed.

Let us know what you think.

Please review the information about the concept plan (enlarged plans are included in the presentation, see "Presentation Videos About the Draft Plan" section), and let us know if you think we missed anything. Your feedback will be considered as the team finalizes the plan.

CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

The proposed washroom location is appalling. That area of the park is used daily by people of all ages (picnics, sun bathing, games, sports, reading, etc.). Why would one of the most used areas of the park be ruined? A much better location is where the portable toilets are now, east of the spray park and west of the rink. Another option is south of the community league. It is almost as if someone tried to select the worst location in the entire park.The residents along 95 st paid a premium to live across the street from the park and to enjoy the open view/access to the park. There is no need to add a sidewalk, barriers, or a fence on the east side of 95 st. Not only is it a waste of money but it will ruin the inviting and open nature of the park.With the current state of the cities finances, why would these unnecessary modifications be made to the park at all. Taxpayers throughout the city don't need additional tax increases for "improvements" that the local residents do not want.

DO NOT PUT A PUBLIC WASHROOM IN THE MIDDLE OF THE PARK. IT WILL BE RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET FROM PEOPLES HOMES. THAT IS ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING. PUT THE WASHROOM ACROSS THE STREET FROM YOUR HOUSE. NOT ONLY IS THAT THE WORST LOCATION FOR THE WASHROOM, IT WILL ATTRACT VAGRANTS THAT WILL USE THE WASHROOM TO DO DRUGS. ITS ALSO A MASSIVE WASTE OF MONEYPlan overall is great!

Please DO NOT put public toilets directly in front of houses along 95th street. This is directly in front of my house and we absolutely do not want a toilet across from us, blocking the view into the park. Instead, the toilets should be placed further into the park, closer to the community league and other existing structures. In addition to the current plan being problematic for residents along 95th street, it blocks an otherwise open entryway into the park that is enjoyed by a lot of people. People are constantly using the open space there, putting any permanent structure, let alone a bathroom, would seriously disrupt the use of this area of the park. DO NOT place the toilets here. Thank you.

The quality of video does not allow for a meaningful display of the informations on your boards or to gather appropriate input. What a shame all this hard work is being put to public in such an inefficient manner. I am aware of the PDF of the concept, but your presentation which holds the bulk of information could be improved.The most appalling suggestion is the proposed placement of a public washroom right across from houses on 95th street. As a resident of this street it is highly undesirable. There are much more suitable locations south of the community hall, or near the existing port a potty.A warming hut is also highy undesirable for the transient community and safety concerns it will bring.You forgot the most frequent use of this space is actually use of the playground. There is no discussion of improvements or changes to the playground.I do not see a need for benches and signs or even a sidewalk on 95th street, it's as if this team is trying to destroy the abience of our neighbourhood.Lastly the folk fest is noted as a key stakeholder, but it should be considered that there is no guarantee of the ongoing viability of this festival and a group that destroys the park once a year for four days (albeit the disruption to park and area is several weeks) seems to have been given higher weight than is appropriate.

Why not make the pedestrian path on the SE area of the plan (Starting connors road ending 97th avenue) a shared use path. More options for everyone would be great!

Location of public toilets directly in front of 95 Street front yards Is unacceptable. Toilets would be just steps away from these residential homes! Instead move toilets from proposed location straight eastwards to CCL building boundary.

Given that the grass never recovers, how about a paved roadway through the park. Would keep the crans and loaders on the same driving pattern. A perimeter fence in the same style as the playground all around a Gallagher park to keep cars off the green belt. With a gate access on the north east .

Please don't ruin the mountain biking trails in Camel Humps! The walking path up Cloverdale hill should also be naturalized not made of concrete/pavement.
