Sunset Point Park Playground

The Town of Collingwood’s Parks, Recreation, and Culture Department is working on the first phase of designing a new playground facility at Sunset Point Park.

Thank you to Residents and Park Users who provided feedback in our March 2019 survey. This feedback will help guide the process into the next stages of public engagement and design. Stay tuned!

The current 2.33 hectare playground at Sunset Point Park, known as EnviroPark, was constructed in 1993. The playground was originally built out of wood and concrete, and designed around the theme of water protection and the environment. Park features, including the sand surfacing, do not meet current accessibility standards. After 26 years of community use, this playground now requires replacement.

The playground re-design will serve to revitalize the park environment, creating an inclusive and accessible area for active play, supporting healthy development for children across the community.

A major topic of discussion was the 7 key categories of play (active, artistic, creative, sensory, games, social, and reflective). Children who joined their families also shared their playground design ideas for the play-space at Sunset Point Park.

    Local kids share ideas and have their voice heard

    The Town of Collingwood’s Parks, Recreation, and Culture Department recently visited local schools to engage with youth on the design of a new playground facility at Sunset Point Park.

    In an effort to give voice to kids and prioritize their opinions on this playground project, Town Staff met with over 200 Grade 1 to Grade 7 students at the Collingwood Elementary Schools. These 6 to 13 year olds shared the forms of play that were most important to them out of 7 key categories (active, artistic, creative, sensory, games, social, and reflective), and designated the play opportunities they would like to see in each of those categories. The kids also shared their ideas and designs on how they perceive the play space at the Sunset Point Park.

    This feedback, along with feedback from our March 2019 survey, will help guide the process into the next stages of public engagement and design, which will include family engagement opportunities.
