Open Houses Seek Feedback on Park Improvement Plans

The City of Fredericton is seeking input from residents on the final draft of its new Park Improvement Plans for Wilmot Park and Carleton Park.  Plans for both Parks will be unveiled for public viewing and feedback at two separate open houses in October.  These plans are based on findings collected and processed from residents at two separate public workshops held in June 2016, as well as feedback from an online survey.

Conceptual plans of Wilmot Park will be presented at a meeting on October 13, 2016 from 7-9 pm at Government House, 51 Woodstock Road.  A major recreational space for over 100 years, Wilmot Park is one of the most visited parks in Fredericton.  With ample active and passive recreational spaces and the city’s new aquatic splash pad, Wilmot Park is a well loved City asset.

The conceptual plans for Carleton Park will be available for viewing and discussion at Picaroons Brewery, 912 Union Street on Saturday, October 22, 2016 from 2-4pm.  Carleton Park is one of Fredericton’s most significant riverfront assets with beautiful views of the downtown, opportunities to connect with nature through bird watching and direct access to the Saint John River.

Members of the City’s Parks & Trees Division as well as the project consultant, Trace Planning & Design, will be on hand at the open house to answer questions.
