  • Frank Stronach Park - Splash Pad

    Created: Thursday, May 18, 2017

    Frank Stronach Splash Pad

    Construction Commencement Notice Dated October 10, 2017

    Please be advised that the Town has received all approvals for the construction of the Frank Stronach Splash Pad.  In an effort to improve Newmarket's parks and provide better amenity spaces, the Town will construct a new Splash Pad in Frank Stronach Park adjacent to the existing asphalt trail just northeast of the existing playground. 

    The project will consist of various themed custom splash pad features and sprayers for both junior (2-5) and senior (5-12) play, custom shade canopies, site furniture, plantings, retaining walls, accessible ramping, concrete paving and seat walls. 

    Construction is scheduled to start as early as Tuesday October 17, 2017 subject to weather, site conditions, and successful contract execution.  Project completion is estimated for May 2018. 

    The existing park will remain open and fully functional during most of the construction of the splash pad.  The senior (5-12) side of the playground will be temporarily closed during the construction of a new concrete walkway along the north side of the playground.  Notice for this closure and expected closure duration will be posted on site 1 to 2 weeks prior to the actual closing. 

    Should you have any further questions and/or concerns regarding this project, please contact Marlise Eguchi from IBI Group at 416-596-1930 or Mike Ashworth at the Town of Newmarket at the number listed below.
