City of Burlington Asking for Feedback on Playground Projects

Love My Playground Feedback

*Please see below a news release issued by the City of Burlington.

Burlington, Ont. — Feb. 22, 2021 — The City of Burlington will be replacing 13 playgrounds over the next two years and is encouraging families who use these playgrounds to complete a survey to pick the features they like the most.

The online survey is available at getinvolvedburlington.ca/lovemyplayground until March 26, 2021.

Playgrounds are an important part of the park experience and provide free physical and creative activities for children and their families. Playgrounds are designed to challenge and stimulate all children, of all abilities. Accessible outdoor play spaces allow for all children to play together, increasing understanding and inclusion.

“The value of outdoor play and our parks and open spaces has been demonstrated this year more than ever. With everyone’s help, we can design playground structures that appeal to all ages of children and parents can have confidence in their safety. Sit down with your kids, show them the options and ask them which they think is more fun.” — Chris Glenn, Director of Recreation, Community and Culture, 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Your email address will not be published.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.
