Kids at park

The Sutton Community Park is planned to be a destination park to serve residents within a one-to-three kilometre radius in the northwest Sutton Development Area.

The park may include junior and senior playgrounds, water play, multi-use court(s), community garden areas, open play area, trails and passive open space. Parking and path lighting is also a consideration. 

The land allocated for the park site is approximately five hectares, and is bounded by Timberbank Square and residential properties to the south, a storm water facility to the west and regionally significant woodlands to the north and east. An accessible, gravel pedestrian trail has been installed to the east which connects the site via woodland and wetland to the local community (Hodgson Trail).

Questions and Answers

Why is Sutton getting a new park?

As Georgina’s population continues to grow, the Town is looking to develop a new community park in Sutton to meet the needs of present and future residents.  A Community Park was planned as part of the subdivision design. As is standard, the timing of the design and construction of the new park is based on the number of new homes built in the local area.

Where is the new park going to be located?

The Sutton Community Park is planned to be a destination park to serve residents within a one-to-three kilometre radius in the northwest Sutton Development Area. The land allocated for the park site is approximately five hectares, and is bounded by Timberbank Square and residential properties to the south, a storm water facility to the west and regionally significant woodlands to the north and east.

What will be included in the new Sutton Community Park?

The park may include junior and senior playgrounds, water play, multi-use court(s), community garden areas, open play area, trails and passive open space. Parking and path lighting is also a consideration. Public open houses in fall 2018 will obtain feedback before consultants proceed to the detailed design.

 

What will it cost to build this new park?

The Sutton Community Park is part of growth and therefore subject to Development Charges funding up to 90 per cent. Council approved the construction budget of $1.4 million during 2019 capital budget deliberations.
The consultants have confirmed that the construction budget is sufficient based on a class D budget estimate analysis.

What is the timing of construction?

Construction budgets have not been approved yet. Council will approve the budget prior to proceeding. It is anticipated that construction will take place late 2019 and into 2020, however this may be adjusted.
