One Final Opportunity to Provide Input For High Point Ridge Neighbourhood Park

The City of Fredericton has released an interactive online update on the High Point Ridge Neighbourhood Park Space, giving residents one more opportunity to provide feedback on prioritizing development concepts for the new park space.

Residents interested in participating in the design process can now fill out a digital questionnaire related to preferences on park amenities, style, and more by visiting the City’s website at www.fredericton.ca/parkplans.  The deadline to provide input is May 17, 2019.

The online update summarizes results from the final public meeting held in February 2019.  Results from the meeting indicate the top three park design priorities are nature oriented play spaces and structures for kids, prominent nature trail access, and the Winter Play areas and activities.  Residents unable to make the February meeting can now complete the same survey online and rank, in order of preference, the design elements most important to them.

Following the public comment period and collection of resident feedback, the consultants will begin developing a draft master plan for the park.  Residents who would like to receive updates directly about future presentations of the High Point Ridge Neighbourhood Park Master Plan, can submit their name and email address for alerts by visiting www.fredericton.ca/parkplans.

The consultation process will result in a plan for a new neighbourhood park 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.
