Selkirk Park, Selkirk Street, Sudbury
Before: Selkirk Park has a variety of recreational opportunities with a Disc (Frisbee) Golf Course, baseball diamond and gazebo. An existing play structure and swing set were found to be in poor condition and in need of renewal in less than five years. These items were removed.
After: Residents told the City of Greater Sudbury they wanted a traditional playground design with structures that encourage climbing, swinging, jumping and sliding. Most requested park amenities were gardens/flowers, picnic areas and benches.
The new playground structure is geared to ages 5 to 12 years. It has an exciting variety of climbing and balancing apparatus with an accessible feature. A new swing set is suitable for both tots and older children.
An overview of the renewed Selkirk Park shows the approximate placement of new play equipment, benches and bicycle rack. 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.
