John Rebecca Park is a working project name based on the site's location at the corner of John Street North and Rebecca Street. The site was formerly a surface parking lot and is now under construction to be redeveloped into a park.

Park Development

The master plan process for John Rebecca Park was completed in 2012.  Development of the site was under consideration along with the review of the Downtown Secondary Plan.  With this process now complete, the City will be moving forward with detail design of the site in 2018 in preparation for construction in 2019.
