Public Workshops Seek Feedback on Park Improvement Plans

June 3, 2016 - The City of Fredericton is seeking input from residents at two separate public workshops to discuss the future of both Carleton Park and Wilmot Park.  The City, along with Trace Planning & Design, has begun working on Park Improvement Plans to maximize the recreational and leisure value for both recreational spaces.  These public workshops will serve as a guiding vision for the overall planning exercise regarding the best possible future uses of these important City assets.

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 construction of a new aquatic splash facility currently underway in the north end of the park, Wilmot Park is a well loved City asset.  The public workshop to discuss the park and its future uses will take place on June 13th at 6:00pm at ODell Lodge in ODell Park.

Carleton Park is one of Fredericton’s most significant riverfront parks with beautiful views of the downtown, opportunities to connect with nature through birdwatching and direct access to the Saint John River.  The public workshop to discuss the future of Carleton Park will take place in the meeting room of the Picaroon’s Brewery, 912 Union Street, on June 16th at 6:00pm.

Trace Planning & Design invites those planning to attend the public workshops to complete a small survey in preparation for the public workshop by visiting www.tracestudio.ca/frederictonparkplans.  More information on the planning process can be found there and by visitingwww.fredericton.ca/parkplans or by contacting the City’s Parks & Trees division at parkstrees@fredericton.ca.
