Georgina has many parks and open spaces for every age group. Georgina's park system includes ball diamonds, soccer fields, artificial turf, tennis and basketball courts, accessible play apparatus for all ages, leash-free dog parks, outdoor skateboard parks, bike park, challenge course, splash pad, outdoor ice rinks (weather permitting), tubing, skiing and terrain park and other amenities such as volleyball courts, picnic shelters, beaches, washrooms and tables.
The Town of Georgina will be completing improvements at a number of parks in 2023. Full or partial closures of these parks will be required for construction work to be completed. The Town thanks residents for their patience while these park improvements are completed.
The Bayview Park will be updated in the spring of 2023. The improvements include an interactive design with a high level of inclusivity and accessibility. Some of the new accessible playground equipment pieces:
- Composite structure with slides and climbing features
- New swings
- Curbed protective surface with engineered wood fibre
Work is scheduled to begin in early May, and there may be some disruption to services and use of the park for three to four days.
Funding for these improvements comes from Resolution c-2021-0300.
Uptown Keswick Parkette
This exciting project will revitalize the Uptown Keswick Parkette, located at 2 The Queensway S., in Uptown Keswick. This project will turn an underused urban parkette into an inviting and inclusive space for the community and local businesses.
COVID-19 restrictions have showcased the importance of inclusive, accessible and welcoming outdoor spaces for people to gather and host events. The Keswick Parkette is located in the Town’s historic business centre, so this park will be a space for residents to gather and support local businesses in Uptown Keswick.
This parkette will feature:
- A new multi-purpose shelter with power outlets to support community events and performances
- Accessible seating throughout
- Concrete plaza and gathering space
- A public art installation featuring indigenous art
- Other improvements to beautify the space.
