City encourages residents to offer feedback on playground improvements

Contribute to proposed updates to three playgrounds in the City: O’Connor Park, La Salle Park and the north playground at Lake Ontario Park. Residents are invited to attend an interactive virtual meeting where staff will introduce the projects. 

Planned improvements include: 

  • Replacement of aging play equipment 
  • Installation of new safety surfacing 
  • Accessible bench seating 
  • New pathway to the playground equipment 

Two options will be provided for each playground and residents will be asked to choose their preferred option during the engagement session and through Get Involved Kingston, the City’s online public engagement platform.   

Get involved, Kingston!
