Your Park. Your Say.

Share your input on the new Vickers Park Playground!

The City of Thunder Bay’s Parks & Open Spaces Section is in the process of obtaining feedback that will help shape the redesign of the playground at Vickers Park.

The current playground area is not accessible and inefficient in its use of space. It has had play structures removed over the years which have not been replaced, and the remaining structure is getting old and nearing the end of its useful life.

Accessibility and inclusivity will be the primary overarching design, complimented with the unique setting of this playground in a heritage park with mature trees that provide many opportunities to explore in the redesign.

The play turtle is lonely and would like some company. This is where you can get involved and have your say through our online survey and idea board below.

Online Survey & Idea Board:
Log in to complete the survey and post your ideas to our idea board. Let us know what options you prefer. The survey and idea board will be available until November 30, 2019.

Our online input is now closed. Thank you for your feedback.

How Your Input Will Be Used:

It is important to understand the needs of those utilizing the playgrounds. If we know what the users would like, there is a better chance we can incorporate the ideas and increase the park's usage. Our goal is to promote physical activity and spending time outdoors.

The City will summarize the results of the citizen input given through the survey and idea board. The playground design concept will be based on resident feedback and Administration's analysis. Design of the playground is expected to be completed by the Summer of 2020. Vickers Park playground will be rehabilitated in future years as budget allows.
