Improving our Parks

Andrew Warburton Memorial Park

Andrew Warburton Memorial Park is a 1.0 hectare (2.5 acre) neighbourhood park located at the intersection of Britannia Avenue and Tragina Avenue North in ward 4. The park is surrounded primarily by single-detached residential housing. Many of the park’s amenities are nearing the end of their life cycle. As such, there is an opportunity to upgrade these amenities, and to evaluate what amenities are desired by the community.
