Forest Glade Optimist Park today has received several enhancements.

A new sports-themed splash pad and fully accessible washroom facility will be open ahead of the Victoria Day long weekend, located between Forest Glade Library and the skate park. The $750,000 investment is part of a $2.2-million sports and recreation upgrade in the area. Further park upgrades are underway with $50,000 going towards installation of security cameras to help monitor park activity.

This work is a continuation of the extensive renewal project at Forest Glade Optimist Park that began with the addition of two basketball courts and a multi-purpose sports court featuring a specialized tile surface. In addition, $200,000 in upgraded LED lighting has been installed throughout the park replacing the decades old lighting.

New pickleball and tennis courts where the old tennis courts were previously located areexpected to be completed by the first day of summer. New catch basins have been installed in and around the parking lot area, where the final lift of asphalt paving will be the final touch, adding an additional $200,000 in improvements.
