These are general timelines provided by the parks planner and may be subject to change:
Spring Valley Trails Community Park: sod is required for the pathways and structures to open, which might happen in August. The field and other large areas won't be seeded in time for this year. The design for the park features a playground for children aged 2 to 12, an intermediate sized soccer field and fitness stations along a perimeter pathway. The park will be shaded and sheltered by generous plantings of trees and wildflower meadow areas will enhance the existing natural environment. Mown grass areas will provide space for casual active play while quiet seating areas are scattered throughout. A pathway will connect to Knotridge Street through the Open Space forested area. Spaces have been reserved for tennis courts, a splash pad and small parking lot should additional funds become available in the future.
Trailsedge East Park: plan to build and seed this fall with a potential opening next year if all goes to plan. The park is centrally located in the community and well connected to the area greenspace network by a multi-use pathway along the frontage of the park. A bus stop near the park entrance will ensure additional accessibility. The design proposes junior and senior playground equipment, seating areas, a shade shelter, splash pad, adult fitness equipment, skateboard practice features, basketball practice keys, tennis / pickleball practice courts and a circular perimeter pathway set among natural plantings.

*Urbanization of Renaud Road - Compass St to Mer Bleue Road
A message from Councillor Dudas:
My office has received an update from the City's planning staff regarding the Renaud Road urbanization work planned between Mer Bleue and Fern Casey.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the developer responsible for doing the work has been unable to hire contractors, resulting in the construction being delayed. I am disappointed that the project will not be going ahead this summer, as we all know how important this work is to the community. I will continue to follow up on this project, and share updates with you as soon as I receive them.
*Urbanization includes sidewalks, curbs, lighting and a lift of asphalt..
