Update - Strathearn Crescent Dry Pond Expansion and Temporary Closures

  • Share

Ward 6 official website 

An update on the Christie Park Drainage Improvements 
that began in April 2017:

Work on the dry pond expansion to address local drainage on Strathearn Crescent S.W. will be complete in late June. The pathway will be open soon to the public, however, the grass near the pathway will be closed to the public until the end of September.

New sod will be laid, and in order for the grass to take root and grow properly, all foot traffic or use of the grass will be restricted for the next four months.
Signage and snow fences will be placed around the protected areas and will remain in place until the end of September.

We understand this is a popular off-leash dog park and well-enjoyed by the public, and we understand this restriction is inconvenient. We do hope that the public’s cooperation in refraining from using the grass now will result in a healthy green space for all to use by this autumn. Thank you for your patience.
