What is a Neighbourhood Park?

This consultation process will result in a plan for a new neighbourhood park serving the High Point Ridge subdivision.  A neighbourhood park is a local park within walking distance (750m) of a residential neighbourhood; it is a recreational and social focal point, providing space for gathering, informal activity, and play.  Examples of neighbourhood parks in the City of Fredericton are Reading Street Park and Lincoln Heights Park.

PUBLIC Meeting #2

A small but committed group of residents attended the February 26th 2019 workshop at Morning Gate Church (on a particularly chilly evening!). Due to the inclement weather, resident turnout was lower than the first public meeting in September (pictured right). In an effort to reach out to more neighbourhood residents, this page presents public meeting #2 discussion questions and provides further opportunity for feedback.
