What is Happening and Why?
With new development and new residents within Bedford West, some parks have yet to be fully developed with facilities to serve the needs of this community. As part of the 2020/21 Parks and Recreation Business Plan, staff will be developing a guiding plan for recreation facilities such as playgrounds, sports courts, sports fields and trails. Parks benefit from having a plan, so as resources become available, features can be implemented.
Park Planning Scope
The Bedford West community area is presented in purple below. Generally, the community is west of Highway 102, south of Hammonds Plains Road, east of the community of Kingswood, and north of the proposed Blue Mountain Birch Cove Lakes Wilderness Area (BMBCL). The BMBCL Wilderness Area is outside the scope of this project. An engagement program specific to BMBCL is planned to launch in December 2020. A separate survey specific to a BMBCL trailhead in Bedford West will be open until March 5, 2021.
