A Park Space for Neighbours; City to Present First Draft of High Point Ridge Park Plan

The City of Fredericton is inviting residents of the High Point Ridge area to see the first draft of its High Point Ridge Neighbourhood Park Master Plan. The draft master plan, prepared by Trace Planning and Design, incorporates the public’s input and feedback on park amenities, style, and more gathered over the past nine months.

Residents from the area participated in a number of public open houses dating back to September 2018, where residents from the area completed 3 online surveys, and most recently helped to prioritize development concepts during a community working session for the new park space. The result is a master plan for the new park space, truly designed to best serve and anticipate the growing needs of the neighbourhood and the surrounding community.  

Residents interested in viewing the plan are invited to a public open house to be held at the Morning Gate Church, 74 Morning Gate Drive, on Wednesday, May 22 from 7 -9 pm.

Members of the consulting team will highlight key findings of the draft plan for the new neighbourhood park space serving the High Point Ridge area of the city.

A neighbourhood park can be defined as a local park space within walking distance of a residential neighbourhood.  The park serves as a recreational and social focal point for the community, providing space for gathering, activity and play.

The City looks forward to exploring your thoughts at this important session.
