The City of Oshawa is redeveloping Florell Park at 960 Florell Drive and wants to hear your thoughts on preferred playground equipment and accessibility.
The conceptual plan includes a new playground with sheltered seating area, accessible park pathway, and new site furniture and amenities.
Community members who prefer to complete the feedback form on paper are asked to call Service Oshawa at 905-436-3311 during regular business hours.
Feedback will be received until noon on Thursday, October 28, 2021, and will be considered in the selection of playground equipment and accessibility of the site.
“Community feedback is vital in our Parks’ redevelopment process,” said Oshawa Mayor Dan Carter. “I encourage residents to participate and share their feedback on the redevelopment of Florell Park.”
“The make-up of a neighborhood changes over time and so, therefore, do the needs of that neighborhood concerning any park and related facilities,” said Councillor Rick Kerr, Chair of the Community Services Committee. “The public input process on park redevelopment is important for both the residents and City Staff, for each benefits from the feedback provided. Now is that time for residents in the Florell Park area. I urge you to take advantage of this process.”
“Our council has continued the City of Oshawa’s commitment to accessibility not only for new facilities but to existing ones that need to be brought up to modern accessible standards. Florell Park will soon be able to be enjoyed by more of our residents with this redevelopment project,” said Councillor Derek Giberson, Vice-Chair of the Community Services Committee.
“It is exciting that this long overdue redevelopment of Florell Park is becoming a reality. The project is a result of community action and I am looking forward to their comments in the consultation,” said Brian Nicholson, Ward 5 Regional and City Councillor.
“Residents near Florell Park, please take the opportunity to provide your valued input into the remake of your neighbourhood park,” said John Gray, Ward 5 City Councillor.
