Development of the William Hawrelak park rehabilitation plan is underway with the initial phase of the physical and functional assessments of the park complete.
To evaluate the physical condition, assess the useful life of the assets and inform the long term rehabilitation and maintenance planning for the park, a condition assessment of all assets including trees, facilities, roadways, paths, utilities and park fixtures and furniture was completed.
In order to understand how through rehabilitation the functionality of the park could be improved, various user groups and citizens were asked to share their feedback and perspectives through online surveys, focus groups, intercept and drop-box surveys at the park and a neighbourhood in-person event. The information gathered informs the rehabilitation plan by providing a greater understanding of how the park is currently used and how it could better support programs and services, safety and security and access and circulation for years to come.
The next phase of the project includes establishing priorities for the renewal of the park and developing an implementation plan including phasing options that will potentially require partial and/or full park closure, costing and a schedule.
