Operation Greater Playgrounds

Background

City Council approved a phased renewal of municipal playgrounds identified as being in poor condition as part of the 2018 municipal budget process. To date, 26 municipal playgrounds have undergone replacement/renewal. Eight playgrounds are scheduled for renewal this year, and the balance of the identified playground locations are scheduled for renewal in future phases.

The City of Greater Sudbury is pleased to continue with Phase 3 of the Playground Revitalization Project.

Eight municipal playgrounds will be renewed in 2022 through a partnership of the City of Greater Sudbury and FedNor Canada (Community Revitalization Fund):

  • Brighton Tot Lot, Brighton St., Garson (Budget $37K)
  • Gil Loop Tot Lot, Gill Ave., Onaping (Budget $45K)
  • Grandview Playground, Grandview Blvd., Sudbury (Budget $70K)

  • Shawn Tot Lot, Shawn St., Azilda (Budget $50K)
  • Simon Lake Park, Naughton (Budget $65K)
  • St. Charles Lake Tot Lot, Brenda Dr., Sudbury (Budget $140K)

Phase 3 locations were selected based on updated condition assessments and inspection reports.
