Lonsdale Playground, 811 Lonsdale Avenue, Sudbury
Before: An existing slide was found to be in poor condition and in need of renewal in less than five years. This item will be removed in the spring 2019. A tot play structure and a spring toy are still in good condition and will remain in the playground.
Preferred activities were climbing multiple tiers of decking, swinging, slides at multiple heights and lengths and social interaction. Most requested park amenities were shaded rest areas, benches and a water fountain.
An overview of the renewed Lonsdale Playground shows the approximate placement of new play equipment as well as a shaded bench area. It does not show existing structures that do not require renewal and will remain in the playground.
Installation of new play structures, including a new ground surface of engineered wood fibre, is scheduled for the spring 2019.
