Barnardo Park Rehabilitation: Community Meeting

Event date: Thursday, February 16, 2017, from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM
Location: Queen Alexandra Community Centre

A community meeting will take place on Thursday, February 16th, giving area residents the chance to hear more about the City of Peterborough’s plans to rehabilitate Barnardo Park. The public will have the opportunity to provide the City with their input and comments on the rehabilitation plans.

The meeting will run from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Queen Alexandra Community Centre, 180 Barnardo Avenue.

The rehabilitation project has received a $300,000 Ontario150 Community Capital Program grant. Administered by the Ontario Trillium Foundation, these grants will help non-profit organizations, municipalities and Indigenous communities to renovate, repair and retrofit existing community and cultural infrastructure. The one-time, Ontario150 Community Capital Program has been designed to help honour Ontario’s past, showcase the present and inspire future generations.

“I am pleased that our government is partnering with the City of Peterborough through the Ontario Trillium Foundation to provide funding for this project. Replacing the aging play structures and creating a park that is accessible to all individuals will provide a space that will foster active lifestyles and be available to more families in our community.” – The Hon. Jeff Leal, MPP for Peterborough.

Funds from the Ontario150 Community Capital Program grant will be used to help revitalize Barnardo Park, by installing a new splash pad, replacing aging play structures and make upgrades to walkways and parking areas that will improve the park’s accessibility. City of Peterborough staff will share the concept plans for the project and be at the meeting to hear from residents.

The Ontario150 Community Capital Program is administered by the Ontario Trillium Foundation, an agency of the Government of Ontario and one of Canada’s largest granting foundations.
