Waterloo to begin consultation on design of Alexandra Park
City purchased three properties for $1.5 million in 2017 to expand parkette
Waterloo will spend $200,000 to conduct a public consultation and begin the design phase of Alexandra Park near the uptown core.
In 2017, the city purchased three properties on William Street for $1.5 million to expand a parkette that had a small playground.
The properties purchased included the former Beam's Bedding shop. The park currently has an entrance on Alexandra Avenue and by purchasing the properties on William Street, the city will be able to make a park that connects the two streets.
The city says the park expansion will provide recreational space "to service the growth in the neighbourhood."
The rest of the funding for the project will be considered in the 2020-2022 budget.
