The City is creating a master plan for Fairview Park to help guide decision-making about park improvements and investment. To help us with the project we’ve hired a team of consultants made up of urban design and cultural heritage specialists from SGL Planning and Design Inc. and ASI Heritage.

Once complete, the Fairview Park master plan will be presented to Council for approval, will reflect the community’s vision for the park, and will include a park strategy and conceptual design layout.

Background

The project study area is located north of the QEW, bounded by Scott Street to the north and Geneva Street to the east. The 6.7-acre parcel encompasses both the former Fairview Golf & Mini Putt lands (commonly referred to as Fairview Park) and neighbouring John Page Park. A section of the historic Third Welland Canal is buried beneath the park, with remnants of a swing bridge visible along the western boundary.

Since operation of Fairview Golf & Mini Putt ceased in 2015, the park has been used primarily for passive recreation. In addition to playground equipment and its expansive open spaces, the park now includes a labyrinth and hard-surfaced connections between Scott Street, Geneva Street, and Fairview Mall.

A background review report, prepared by SGL Planning & Design, offers greater detail on the park's history, adjacent neighbourhood, relevant policies and plans, and more. You can find the report in the documents section of this project page.

Help Plan Your Park

In the Fall of 2023, two concept park layout alternatives were presented to the public through both online and in-person consultation. Based on feedback received, the City’s consultants have compiled a more detailed draft master plan for the park. The draft plan reflects the public’s preference for Concept One (Community Use / Active Use Focused), and its desire to ensure the canal and rail shipping history of the site is reflected in the park’s design. The draft master plan and two concept park layout alternatives can be downloaded from the “Documents” pane on this project page. A Heritage Interpretation Options Memorandum, prepared by ASI, the City’s heritage and archaeology consultants, is also available for download.

Your vision is important to us! You can submit your feedback on the draft master plan by using the “Submit Feedback” tab below.


This page will be updated regularly as more information becomes available.
