Wark Street Park Playground
A New Playground for Wark Street Park
The Wark Street Park playground now features new play equipment suited for children 18 months to five years and five to 12 years of age. The playground has been expanded to provide an additional "spinning component" to compliment the two separate junior and senior play structures. The high swings were replaced in the sand area, which also includes a "theatre/stage" for imaginative play.
Children and parents had the opportunity to view display panels and place stickers next to their favourite play equipment; draw their vision for the playground; meet Park planners and ask questions; suggest play area improvements for the enjoyment of the community; and complete a short survey. Those who were unable to attend the open house could view the display panels and participate in a survey online and at the Beacon Hill Park office until November 30, 2012.
Each year, the City of Victoria upgrades a number of its parks. Before any work begins, park planners consult with the community to listen to their ideas and determine what they would like to see improved. Each park is unique and the City strives to meet the community's needs while working within set budgets.
