The FoRRP Steering and Revitalization Committees continue to work on the proposed ramp with the City and their contractor Rich McAvan of Harrington McAvan Landscape Architects. This is the first of a series of park upgrades and will be done in 2012, with other larger initiatives happening in 2013. This ramp will replace the badly deteriorating stairs on the west side of the park (Roxton Road), near the brick washroom building (see image from previous post here).
Above are two early schematic drawings done prior to bringing on McAvan. Design drawings by McAvan are currently being developed based on valuable sessions between the parties, that meets the needs of the neighbourhood, and will be shared here in the near future along with more detailed information about the work to be undertaken. Expect to see construction starting in late September 2012!
