News release

This year, the Town of Milton is investing over $4.2 million to design and build parks of possibility in the community.

As Milton evolves, there is a continued need for shared outdoor spaces across the community. While we continue to combat the pandemic, Milton needs to continue to be future focused on our long term needs as a community. As such, each year, the Town expands and enhances its park inventory, through new park development and park redevelopment.

“Parks are vital spaces for community members get active, socialize and connect with nature,” said Mayor Gord Krantz. “We know parks are beloved places in each neighbourhood. That’s why we’re investing in building, upgrading and enhancing these outdoor community spaces, to enjoy for years to come, with you and your family in mind.”

In 2021, one new park development, Cobban Neighbourhood Park, and one park redevelopment, Moorelands Park, are going through the design process. Public engagement for these two parks will launch this month.

Additionally, Milton continues the investment in our community with the following six parks going through the construction process:

  • Benjamin Chee Chee Park
  • Coulson Park
  • Coxe Boulevard Park
  • Kingsleigh Park
  • Omagh Park
  • Sam Sheratt Trail (Drury Park)

As the construction season begins, Town crews and contractors will be out in the community building essential municipal infrastructure, including parks, making Milton a Place of Possibility. Please be patient, safe and kind when entering or passing a construction zone.

The Town of Milton develops news parks, and invests in upgrades and improvements to existing parks and open spaces, as required. Park development and redevelopment projects are approved annually through the capital budget. Park projects and budgets are approved by Milton Council through two phases – design approval and construction approval.
