THANK YOU!

Project update - August 19, 2021: Phase 2 of public engagement has now concluded. Thank you to everyone who joined the virtual open house, completed the survey and talked with us during pop-ups at the park.

This community feedback will help guide the development of the draft master plan that will be presented to the public at Open House #3 in the fall.

For those who missed it, you can view the recorded presentation here and the open house presentation slides here.


ABOUT HUME PARK

Established in 1912, Hume Park is a 31.72 acre park located at 660 East Columbia Street in the Sapperton Neighbourhood. Its unique topography defines a distinct Lower Hume and Upper Hume Park and its variety of natural amenities and recreational facilities enable the park to serve as both a passive and active recreational destination while the Brunette River provides valuable aquatic and wildlife habitat. With ecologically sensitive areas, aging infrastructure and future adjacent development, Hume Park faces challenges to balance a variety of user needs and interests to continue to serve the community.

WHAT WE HOPE TO ACHIEVE

The Hume Park Master Plan will be a 20 year, long term vision for Hume Park that will provide direction to the Parks and Recreation Department by identifying priorities for implementation of improvements.

The purpose of the master plan study is to identify community priorities for the park while ensuring compatibility of current and future uses and efficiency of the overall park layout within the context of preserving ecologically sensitive areas along the Brunette River. With a community-vetted master plan in hand, the department will be well equipped to efficiently and effectively allocate future Capital Project funds as they become available.

We will be posting project updates, Open House dates and other opportunities for feedback on this site so check back often.
