The City of Oshawa is redeveloping Deer Valley Park located at 870 Deer Valley Drive and would like to hear your thoughts on preferred playground equipment and accessibility.
The conceptual plan includes a new playground and splash pad, with sheltered seating area, accessible park pathway, and new site furniture and amenities.
Community members are invited to participate online on Connect Oshawa (www.connectoshawa.ca/DeerValleyPark) to view the conceptual plan and virtual presentation as well as complete an online feedback form.
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 Tuesday, October 12, 2021, and will be considered in the selection of playground equipment and accessibility of the site.
“This exciting redevelopment of Deer Valley Park, includes a new playground and splash pad that will create a family-oriented hub for the local neighbourhood to enjoy for years to come. I encourage community residents to have their say by providing feedback on the conceptual plan,” said Oshawa Mayor Dan Carter.
“The park redevelopment process is important for that area’s residents to participate in because societal activity patterns change over time,” said Councillor Rick Kerr, Chair of the Community Services Committee. “This review process gives residents the opportunity to bring forward ideas to keep their park attuned to their needs.”
“Community parks like Deer Valley are the heart and soul of the neighbourhood, and just like neighbourhoods change over the years so do the recreation needs of its residents,” said Ward 2 Regional and City Councillor Tito Marimpietri. “I have made it a priority to turn the City’s attention toward revitalizing older neighbourhood parks offer the same exciting recreational spaces as newer areas, and I encourage community members to share their ideas for the much anticipated redevelopment of Deer Valley Park.”
“We look forward to your feedback on the proposed plans for your neighbourhood park which we trust will be well used by all ages,” said Jane Hurst, Ward 2 City Councillor.
