New park – the city wants to hear from you

The Fernbank Community will be integrating a new park into their subdivision – the Putney Woodland Park – for which the City of Ottawa wants to hear from you with respect to its design. Within the first phase of the new CRT Development, the 1.3 hectare park will be located between Putney Crescent and Dagenham Street in Stittsville. Existing mature trees will form the canopy of the park that will feature a playground, swing, pathway and seating.

The eventual park concept plan will meet City of Ottawa Accessibility Design Standards and the provisions of the City of Ottawa Park and Pathway Development Manual including the Parks and Pathways Inclusive Design Checklist.

Community members are invited to provide comments and preferences between Option A or Option B. The concept plans and images below show the two options being profiled for the playground development.

Your comments should be provided to Jennifer Shepherd no later than January 2, 2019 at the details below:

  1. I noticed there will be some homes built in Dagenham street (between Bobolink Ridge and Cope Drive). Why? There is a future elementary school in this street and the street would be already packed! Why we need to have houses built here? That space could be allocated to park and green spaces instead! What a terrible design!!!!
