New Opportunity for Engagement
St. James Community Parks and Recreation Improvements
The City is asking for feedback from St. James area residents to determine the community’s parks and recreation needs. The community’s input through an online survey (available until August 5) will help determine gaps in parks and recreation needs and will lead to determining recreation options available for public feedback.
$1.4 million in proposed funding is identified for parks and recreation amenities in the 2019 Capital Budget forecast for 2020. The City is looking at improving parks and recreation in the area of 255 Hamilton Ave. (former Vimy Arena). We are asking for input from those in the Lakewood, Crestview, Heritage Park, Buchanan, and Sturgeon Creek neighbourhoods.
