The City of London has had to defer construction of Sherwood Forest Park (and others across the city) from fall 2019 to spring 2020. The project has been delayed to ensure a high quality finished product, to provide a little more time to better coordinate with the adjacent developer and to ensure that the park remains useable over the winter months (this means the dirt piles will be leveled). The City has apologized for the delay, but hopes the neighbourhood understands and appreciates the key reasons for the delay. The City has indicated that this park project will be their highest priority to complete in the spring, 2020, once conditions are suitable.
If you have any questions, please contact City staff directly, either Stephanie Wilson at 519-661-2489 x 1871, email@example.com or Jeff Bruin at extension 5067, firstname.lastname@example.org
The City is looking for feedback on the new Sherwood Forest Park by April 19 via a survey.
The storyboards presented at the open house on the the park on April 3 should be available soon on the City’s website (london.ca/parks). We will also post a link here on the website when they are available.
The City has also been invited to the ratepayers Annual General Meeting on Thurs, May 23rd at Orchard Park P.S. (at 7:30 pm following the annual BBQ) to give us an update on what they have planned by that point. By May 23, they expect to have a “near final” version with only minor tweaks before putting together the paperwork to start the park construction this fall. Thus, get your comments in now. City staff also advised that some trees are in poor condition and will have to be removed when the park is constructed.
