    The RDN has modified the Boultbee playground selection process to include public input. Boultbee Community Park will be getting a new playground this fall and the RDN would like the area residents to help choose what it will look like.

    A Request for Proposals for the design and installation of a new playground has been issued. Playground suppliers and contractors who submit a proposal will also provide a proposed playground design. These designs will be shared on the project’s Get Involved page and residents will have the opportunity to vote on their preferred playground design.

    Voting will take place between July 19 - August 9, 2024. The playground with the most votes will be built.

    Thank you again to everyone who provided their input about the future of Boultbee Drive Community Park. A summary of the engagement results can be found here or in the Documents sections of this page.

    A concept plan for the park has been developed and funding has been dedicated to construct the park improvements in two phases. Phase 1 will be constructed in 2022 and Phase 2 in 2026. The concept plan is available here or in the Documents section of this page.

    Phase 1 improvements to the park will include a new asphalt pathway through the park, surfacing improvements and new basketball hoop for the sport court, new park furnishings including benches and picnic tables, and other landscape features such as new plantings and a park sign.

    Phase 2 improvements to the park will include removing the existing playground and replacing it with a new expanded play area. The new playground will include a play structure with slides, a swing set, monkey bars, and a spinner.

    The next steps for the project will involve refining the Concept 1 design and getting quotes from contractors to construct Phase 1 in 2022.

    If you have any questions or comments about the concept design for Boultbee Community Park, please submit through the Questions and Comments link on this page.

    Next steps will include the preparation of a concept plan for park improvements based on what we heard.

    Some of the comments shared were specific to the water quality in the Sandpiper neighbourhood. This feedback has been provided to RDN Water Services. Improvements at Boultbee Drive Community Park are funded by all residents of Electoral Area G, including River's Edge, San Pareil, Dashwood and the French Creek area. The water system is specific to the Sandpiper neighbourhood and is funded by the residents of that neighbourhood only, separately from park projects. Improvements at the Park will not detract from ongoing efforts to improve the water quality for the neighbourhood.
