Good news! Upgrading the playground at Frank Ryan Park is on the list of projects for which the City received federal and prov funding. This project is scheduled for 2024. What exactly will be funded is not yet known. There will be consultation with the community before plans are finalized.

Meanwhile QTNca is focusing on other issues related to local use of the parks in our area. For example, we continue to raise issues of access for parents with children in strollers and persons using wheelchairs and walkers. Expanding the community gardens as demand increases in addition to other community activities such as park clean-ups and spreading wood chips to improve the paths in Elmhurst Park. If you have not done so already, please share your thoughts with us on local priorities for QTN park spaces.
