Town of Milton drafts concepts for development of Cobban Neighbourhood Park


Published June 25, 2021 at 2:16 pm

The Town of Milton is currently seeking community feedback on three design concepts they have drafted for the development of Cobban Neighbourhood Park.

The 3.7 acre park, which is located at 840 Whitlock Ave., south of Louis St. Laurent Blvd. and west of Thompson Rd., is adjacent to the future Halton Catholic District School Board Elementary School #10 to the east and a woodlot associated with the Sixteen Mile Creek watershed to the west.

After reviewing the community’s input on the future of the park, the town drafted a total of three design concepts.

“Concept A” includes a baseball field, play area, spray pad, full multi-court, separate parking lot, berms and open grass areas.

“Concept B” includes a major soccer field, play area, spray pad, half-court, adult stationary fitness station, parking lot with a shared entrance with the school, berm and open grass areas.

“Concept C” includes an intermediate soccer field, play area, spray pad, adult stationary fitness station, separate parking lot and berms and open grass areas.

Phase two of engagement is currently underway and is open from now until June 29.

The town is seeking feedback on the park’s elements, what residents like about the design concepts and any potential changes for improvement.

According to the town, the final design can incorporate elements from different concepts.

“We’re excited to develop a new neighbourhood park with you and your family in mind! Local parks are shared spaces for the community to get active, recreate, socialize and connect with nature. They are places built for the community, with the community in mind,” reads the Town of Milton’s website.

The design of Cobban Neighbourhood Park is set to take place throughout 2021 with construction predicted to begin in spring 2022 and completed in fall 2022, subject to council’s approval of the proposed 2022 capital budget.
