A community meeting was held at the West Bend Community Association on the 21st of January. At this meeting, Parks staff and the Design Architect presented a design and sought-out the community’s input for the Dundas – Watkinson Parkette. The community members in attendance said that they would like a more naturalized and passive park with a few members seeking to keep some aspect of a play area for smaller children. That is now the direction of Parks’ staff.
Following the initial meeting, members of the community have chosen to start a Friends Of group for the Dundas – Watkinson Parkette.
The first Friends Of Watkinson’s Park meeting is Sunday February 15th from 2-5 PM.
