The City is proposing to develop Phase 2 of Diamond Jubilee Park in Findlay Creek starting next year. Phase 2 of Diamond Jubilee Park is designated as an active recreational sports field park intended to accommodate a wide range of active and passive activities for all ages.
Phase 2 of Diamond Jubilee Park has an area of 4.19 ha and is located to the north of the Phase 1 park and White Alder Avenue, and west of Kelly Farm Drive. The Phase 2 development area is currently undeveloped with the exception of a mini soccer field.
The following is a summary of the park amenities that are proposed to be included as part of the Phase 2 park development in 2018:
- A 0.44 ha fenced-in dog run
- Double lit tennis courts
- A 33-space parking lot with access from Kelly Farm Drive
- A full-size soccer field adjacent to Kelly Farm Drive
- An ultimate field located to the south of Leitrim Pond 2
- Pathways, site furnishings and landscaping
A BMX track is shown as a potential alternative to the dog run. Funding is not currently available for the design and construction of a BMX track.
The project is currently in the concept design stage. A public meeting will be held on Monday, February 26, 2018, from 7:00pm-8:30pm at Fred Barrett Arena and the Parks and Facilities Planning Branch is requesting comments on the draft Concept Layout in advance of the public meeting.
