Centennial Park Plaza Upgrades

The Centennial Park Plaza has been identified as the next phase of park upgrades as part of the approved 20-year Master Plan. Work on this phase began in 2022 and included detailed designs to replace the park plaza and install lighting. This upgrade includes the removal and replacement of the existing park concrete and brick paver plaza, additional drainage, lighting, landscaping, and furnishings. Existing trees inside and along the plaza are to be retained.

Previously completed work to upgrade the park includes site assessments, central drainage, the washroom facility replacement, and the playground replacement.
