The project cleared the existing sand from the park and installed engineered wood fiber plus drainage to make it easier for wheelchair accessibility. We also installed a concrete ramp for easier access to the park and an accessible swing set to better support a person with a disability. The City of Mississauga installed armrests on the benches.

The project was completed in July 2016 and is now fully accessible to persons with disabilities.

 

Here is a map to the location of the park.
