When November 29, 2023 at 6:30pm 2 hrs
I will be hosting a Town Hall on Weds Nov 29th, 6:30-8:30pm at Mountsfield PS (8 Mountsfield Dr.) to get your input on future recreational amenities for Thames Park. So far, people have suggested an off-leash dog park, pickleball and tennis courts, expanded community garden and more.
If you can't make it, don't worry, there will be surveys and many ways to provide feedback on options for recreation for the Thames Park. I'll share those as staff develop them.
Staff are working on a feasibility report to outline different locations for an indoor pool, which will aim to serve the Old South area. I’ll share the possible locations as soon as I can.
I know many remain upset and disappointed that the Thames Pool will be decommissioned, and I continue to be sorry for the loss of this incredible community asset. I spent a lot of time earlier this year listening to residents. In the summer, I did make a motion at council
to have it repaired one more time, but unfortunately lost that vote. Direction to staff remains to revitalize Thames Park with new amenities and seek a new pool location, which is why I am beginning the community engagement process.
Will you come?
