Martin Valley Park Design

Martin Valley Park is located at 21 John Street in close proximity to 3 schools including Le Caron, St-Joseph and Canadian Martyr’s. Through the phases of the Harbourpointe development surrounding the John Street Park, the Town acquired additional parkland, increasing the park’s footprint. Much of the space remains undeveloped and is in need of landscaping. The Town had set aside funds to help revitalize the existing park space however in 2018 Council decided to utilize a portion of these funds to engage the services of a landscape architect. The idea behind this move was to develop a vision and some concepts to maximize the use of this land.

Council opted to move with planning for the upper portion of the park (existing) to be developed in keeping with Concept B, with the lower part (acquired land) from Concept A which includes a BMX pump track! Although the details have yet to be finalized, there are placeholders in the 10 year capital plan to move forward with the development. 2023 would largely include the revamping of the upper/existing portion while 2024 would see the development of the bike track.
