The City of Ottawa is seeking input on concept plans prepared for the lifecycle replacement of the junior playground equipment in McKinley Park.
According to the Strategic Asset Management Plan (2017), the Ageing Assets Strategy states that “to maintain levels of service over time and to remain sustainable, not all assets should or can be replaced before reaching the end of their expected service life.”
Therefore, the scope of the current lifecycle replacement project is specific to; a new park sign, upgrading the play structure, swings, benches and pathway repairs. Engineered wood fiber is proposed as the protective surfacing material for the playground to meet accessibility requirements.
To look at the two different concept plans, as well as send in comments, please go to the project’s Engage Ottawa page at McKinley Park | Engage Ottawa.
