The City of Greater Sudbury consulted with residents in October 2017 to develop a citywide standard of quality for all municipal playgrounds. A second round of community consultation, in May 2018, gathered ideas and feedback for additions and improvements specific to the first 12 playgrounds scheduled for renewal.

Contracts have been awarded and work is underway on Phase One of municipal playground renewal. Installation of new play structures was completed at five of 12 playgrounds in 2018. The remaining seven playgrounds will undergo construction in the spring of 2019.
