New Neighbourhood Parks
Two new playgrounds will also be constructed this year at two new parks in the Warren Woods Subdivision:

  • Warren Woods Park West (8707 Warren Woods Avenue)

Both projects approved in the 2020 Capital Budget as Warren Woods East Park Development and Warren Woods West Park Development.

Canada Summer Games Park Improvements
In addition to the above park playgrounds, the Oakes Park playground will be replaced as part of the Oakes Park Canada Summer Games Park Improvements Program approved in the 2020 Capital Budget.

Together these projects will result in ten new or improved playgrounds within the City of Niagara Falls this year. A map illustrating the location of each playground site is enclosed.

    Due to COVID-19, pop-up Public Information Centres (PICs) will not be held this year. Residents will still have an opportunity to preview the new playgrounds as well as provide input into projects. Staff utilizes this input to customize the projects to better suit resident needs as well as identify other recreational requirements for consideration in the future. Details to come at a later date.
