The Town of The Blue Mountains has launched a public survey to gain feedback regarding the development of a new community park in Craigleith.
Over the past several years, the Town has strategically acquired six hectares of parkland in Craigleith from the Windfall, Second Nature, and Blue Vista development sites. The intent is to transform the land into a regional community park for all to enjoy over the next five years.
To launch the project, the Town has started to identify infrastructure necessary for planned improvements, such as parking and public washrooms, and will be consulting with residents and the broader community to hear what recreational and natural elements will best serve residents. To view a map of the location of the new community park, visit the project webpage.
There is potential for the development of the community park to run concurrently with home construction happening at the Blue Vista development site. Aligning these projects would help reduce future construction disturbances once homes start to be occupied.

Are naturalized areas, pickleball courts or walking trails important to you? Would you like to see a dog park, playground or splash pad? Fill out the Craigleith Community Park Survey to share your feedback about what features and amenities you would like to see considered for the new community park. The survey closes on February 26, 2024. Paper copies are available at Town Hall and at the Blue Mountains Public Library branches.
