Update on Playground Replacements - September 14, 2021

Exciting news! New Playgrounds are coming to Little Lake Park East, Bayview Park and Pete Pettersen Park in Spring 2022!

The tender process for the new playground equipment is complete. Public consultation through Engaging Midland was extremely valuable and a significant amount of data was received with residents providing excellent feedback. This helped guide the Request for Proposal process in a manner that aligned with the goals and priorities of Midland residents and will continue to do so in future playground replacement projects.

  • Little Lake Park East and Bayview Park playgrounds have been awarded to Play Power Canada.
  • Pete Pettersen Park playground has been awarded to Openspace Solutions Inc.

The available budget did not allow for a contract to be awarded for Tiffin Park, and it will be part of a future round of playground replacements.

All three new playground installations are scheduled to begin in Spring 2022.

For more details and renderings (like the one below), please see the Replacements & Restorations tab below.

    Quota Park playground restorations have completed. Below are the before and after images. Operations has completed a significant restoration as staff reconstructed and regraded the slope leading to the playground, removed hazardous trees, removed large amount of graffiti from the main structure and benches, repaired and repainted the benches, removed the grass/vegetation and completed a full ground resurfacing, and enhanced the entry pathway. New topsoil was hydroseeded and grass has started growing in the area.

    Playground restorations have begun for playgrounds in the Town of Midland that have passed safety inspections but are in need of upgrading.

    The first to be completed is Gawley Park Playground. This playground has a new big blue slide, and the grounds of both the main structure and swing set were dug out, new sand was added and the areas were regraded. Topsoil and seed were laid around the swing area as regrading was done to provided better drainage.
