Hillside Park Play Area Improvements

Hillside Park Sign

Overview

Hillside Park is located on Squak Mountain and home to both Upper and Lower Cemeteries.  The 44-acre park is mostly forested with an open, grassy 2-acre area that serves as a neighborhood park. The site currently contains a backstop, picnic tables, trash cans and trails, and is the City's only "walk-in" park.  

Background

In 2014, public engagement identified the need for this park to have a play area.  We are taking the feedback received in 2014 and using is as the starting point for completing these play area improvements. 

Survey

As we build on the initial work in 2014, we also wanted to hear from you and get your feedback on the location and play elements. See the results from the survey that closed on March 5.

Timeline

As a capital project, we anticipate any construction to occur in early 2022.
