Glen Stewart Park Redevelopment

This consultation has concluded. Glen Stewart Park will open in August 2019.

Glen Stewart Park’s new splash pad and playground provides community members even more opportunities to stay active and enjoy the outdoors this summer.

Construction was recently completed on the new splash pad and playground at Glen Stewart Park, which is located at 201 Cabot Street (west of Stevenson Road and north of Gibb Street). These elements are now open for public use; the splash pad is operational between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. daily.

Redeveloped areas of the park include a new playground that incorporates a mix of junior and senior play features with a fully accessible rubberized safety surface, a splash pad featuring a multitude of spray features, shaded seating areas, naturalized plantings for enhanced pollinator habitat and ecological diversity in the site, and a new parking area with four accessible spaces.

Additionally, the access to the existing clubhouse has been enhanced with the creation of a new driveway and pedestrian connection.

The park has also retained its two small ball diamonds, passive play areas and the gravel parking lot.

Community members, including the Park’s neighbourhood residents, are invited to the official ribbon cutting of the playground on Monday, August 26 at 10 a.m.

    Marian asked over 1 year ago

    Hi Marian, thank you for your question. At this time, the club house facility is not fully accessible however staff, together with the Oshawa Accessibility Advisory Committee, will be addressing it in the future.


  • With regards to the ball diamonds, are there still plans to remove one to allow for a single larger diamond?

    Hi Cindy, thank you for your question. No, the revised site plan is keeping the existing ball diamonds as they are. 

  • When will the Park close?

    over 1 year ago

    The Park revitalization is anticipated to begin late summer 2018 and continue through to spring 2019.

  • Why was the project delayed?

    over 1 year ago

    The revitalization of Glen Stewart Park was postponed due to floodplain restrictions identified in consultation with the Central Lake Ontario Conservation Authority (C.L.O.C.A.).  As a result of the restrictions, staff worked to identify options to meet community needs within the confines of the new project parameters which required a new permitting process and redesign of select elements.
