Turner Park Project
Turner Park Project
Project BackgroundThe land for Turner Park, located at 6114 Turner Avenue, was acquired by the District of Peachland on March 30, 2021. The 3.34 hectare (8.26 acre) property was formerly owned by School District #23 and is one of the only remaining undeveloped properties able to accommodate athletic fields and other park amenities requiring flat land. The District of Peachland is looking to dispose of the lower site of the property fronting Princeton Avenue, which leaves a balance of 2.25 hectares (5.5 acres) available for parkland.
The Turner Park Concept Plan will build on the findings of the 2018 Parks and Recreation Master Plan and the 2020 Community Park Concept Plan: Sanderson, Heritage and Cousins Park to:
- Assess community needs and desires for park space and amenities;
- Identify the need for future amenities relative to use trends, population growth, and demographics;
- Assess feasibility for park development;
- Create concept drawings (30% working drawings); and
- Provide recommendations for implementation including cost projections, phasing and potential funding sources.
Infrastructure updates that have been completed are;
- Partial restoration of the irrigation system and
- Restoration of the onsite washrooms
Public ConsultationIn June 2021, an initial round of public consultation was conducted. These results were presented to Council at the September 7th Regular Council meeting. This information has helped inform the initial concept designs for public review. Details of the Survey Results can be found here - Turner Park Consultation. A stakeholder engagement session was conducted on December 7, 2021 consisting of representatives from sport, business, arts, dog owners, childcare, family services and service groups.
Public Engagement is now continuing with a display located at the Community Centre along with a survey for the Turner Park Conceptual Masterplan project. To take part in the survey follow this link: Turner Park Conceptual Plan Survey
Project OutcomesThe Turner Park Concept Plan will be a planning document to determine how the park should evolve or develop in the,
- Short term (2-5 years)
- Medium term (6-10 years) and
- Long term (11+ years).
