The Town of LaSalle is planning to improve and enhance St. Clair Park located between St. Clair Avenue and Betts Avenue this summer.

The plan includes installing a new playground structure including components like a swing, slide and balance feature for children between the ages of 18 months to 12 years old. The structure will be accessible, meeting the Accessibility for Ontarians Disability Act (AODA) requirements. In addition, an engineered wood fiber base will be installed under the play equipment.

It also includes the installation of a multi-use pathway, a fenced-in basketball court that will also be painted for ball hockey, installation of benches, garbage cans and bike racks, and planting of trees. Some drainage improvements are also part of the project.

“All major work for the project at St. Clair Park is expected to take place in 2021. We plan to complete the tender for the playground equipment in March or April,” said Mark Beggs, Manager of Roads and Parks. “The park will be closed to the public between June and September when most of the work will take place.”

The play equipment and court may be usable in the fall, but the grass will need some time to grow. The project timelines are dependent on the availability of the contractor and materials and the weather.

The Town is looking for neighbourhood and Town residents to share their thoughts about the project. The Town encourages the community to participate and review the project resources on PlaceSpeak. Feedback about St. Clair Park will be accepted until February 24, 2021.

The project is expected to cost $150,000 and is included in the Town’s 2021 Budget.
