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.
As a next step in the public consultation process, the City is asking interested residents to answer the same questions about park character that were posed during the February public meeting. Please choose the level to which you agree with the following statements.
Sarahs Lane Gateway
Morning Gate Drive Gateway
During the February public meeting, the City asked residents to identify their 3 favourite concepts proposed for High Point Ridge Neighbourhood Park. The meeting results are summarized in the images below. The public meeting attendees’ three “Favourite Things” were:
Nature Play (9 dots)
Nature Trails (8 dots)
Winter Play (5 dots) and Rock Seating (5 dots)
What are your 3 favourite things?
Following the collection of resident feedback, the City will host a presentation on High Point Ridge Neighbourhood Park plan designs. If you would like to receive updates about the presentation date / time / location, please submit your name and email address. Presentation updates will also be shared via City of Fredericton social media and Park Plans webpage.
