City of Ottawa staff have posted a concept drawing for a new park in the Fairwinds West / Poole Creek Village subdivision.  They’re accepting public comments until March 14. Click here for more info or to send feedback to the City.

Councillor Shad Qadri told the Fairwinds Community Association on Wednesday night that the park will be built by the developers (Mattamy, Tartan and Tamarack) at a cost of around $550,000.

“The neighborhood park being built in Fairwinds West and Poole Creek Village, Stittsville is being planned. The park is located at the corner of Rosehill Avenue and Vivera Place. The park features a mini soccer field, a senior and junior play structure with swings and a toddlers sand play area, greenspace, landscaping pathways, benches and the opportunity for a future rink. Extensive effort has been made to save some of the existing vegetation in this park particularly along the western edge of the park.”
