Playground upgrades are underway at multiple sites across Burlington including:

  • Berwick Green Park
  • Clarksdale Park & Public School
  • Frontenac Public School
  • Iroquois Park
  • Irving Parkette
  • Kerncliff Park
  • King’s Road Public School

  • Pauline Johnson Public School
  • Ryerson Park and Public School
  • Sheldon Park
  • Tecumseh Park and Public School
  • Doug Wright Park Playground Replacement
  • Lansdown Park Playground Replacement
  • Lion’s Park

The Lion’s Park neighbourhood in downtown Burlington engaged in the ‘Love Your Playground’ survey process to provide input on their new playground equipment.   As a result, the community preferences were incorporated into the design.

  • Playground and swing set replacement
  • Site furnishings replacement

The construction work at various parks may include:

  • the removal of the existing play equipment
  • placement of concrete curbs
  • placement of asphalt pathways
  • installation of site furnishings
  • installation of protective surfacing
  • minor landscape improvements
  • installation of playground equipment.

A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made. As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington. The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful.
