Burlington, Ont. — March 27, 2024 — The City of Burlington has begun phase 1 of the outdoor engagement on the greenspace at Robert Bateman Community Centre. The outdoor engagement includes a redesign of Frontenac Park. An online survey is open now at until the end of April.

Residents can also join an in-person visioning session at Tansley Woods Community Centre (1996 Itabashi Way) on April 17 from 7-9 p.m. or an online visioning session on April 25 from 7 to 9 p.m. To register for a session, visit

The primary question participants will be asked is, “How would you like to use the greenspace?”

Participants will be able to provide feedback on the redevelopment of this outdoor greenspace including essential paved pathway connections throughout the site to the adjacent school and new Community Centre Entrance.

The information collected will be reviewed by staff to help determine what can and cannot be done in the space and create concepts. Factors that will also determine concepts will be popularity, cost, noise/disruption to neighbours, regulations and technical feasibility.

Park features that cannot go into the greenspace include full-sized sport fields, sport field lighting, pickleball courts, basketball courts, splash pad and an outdoor pool.

“We’re excited to work with the community to make this a greenspace that will be well used and loved by all. Ideas submitted through the engagement process will be vetted through several filters such as budget, space and overall feasibility to create a set of park design concepts. Once those concepts are ready, we’ll once again ask residents for their input in selecting which concept will be created in the greenspace.” — Denise Beard, Senior Manager of Community Development, City of Burlington

Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked *

Here are guidelines before you comment, and our expectations before we will post:

  • Be civil. Would you speak this way to a good friend? If not, rewrite.
  • Focus on the issues. Build your argument and make your case in support of your opinion from facts, research or other sources. That way we can all learn. “I disagree with so-and-so because…” is fine; “So-and-so is naïve/stupid  for thinking the way he/she does and here’s why…” is not acceptable.
  • Don’t make personal attacks. Don’t assume motives of those you disagree with, make unfounded allegations, spread rumours, or engage in any other behaviours that would discourage you from participating if someone said this to, or about, you. The Golden Rule applies: Do unto others as you would have done to you. We will edit or not post comments with this type of content.
  • Say it once: When comments from the same individual or individuals become repetitive, going over ground already stated, we reserve the right to close commenting.
  • Use your full, and real, name. If wish to make a comment in public, we expect you will publicly stand behind it with your name. If you don’t want to publicly reveal your name, that’s fine; you are always welcome to share your thoughts with me privately via my email below. I welcome and consider all feedback in making decisions for the community.
  • Have fun, consider and learn. Share your views and read those of others. May we all benefit from a healthy exchange of ideas, and learn a little more about the people in our community, what you think, and what’s important to each of you. You may end up changing your mind about an issue; even if you don’t, we hope everyone will gain a greater understanding of why people have different perspectives.

A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made. As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington. The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful. Got an idea or comment you want to share privately? Please, get in touch:
