About the Project
This natural park contains regenerating forests and several detention ponds for stormwater management. Easy walking trails loop around the ponds. In 2016, a delegation to the Nanoose Bay Parks and Open Spaces Advisory Committee brought forward the idea of integrating some natural play features into a park in the Madrona/Timberstone Estates neighbourhood. Stone Lake Drive Community Park is easily accessible on foot or by bike from the surrounding residential neighbourhoods, and it's naturalness is well suited for adding features that provide interest and play opportunity for families visiting the park. The RDN Board approved Stone Lake Drive Community Park as a pilot project for a natural play space in October, 2017.
A focus group with area residents was held in December 2018 to explore the project in more detail, to identify where the natural play elements could be located within the park, and to talk about other site design ideas.
Following the Information Session, staff will make any final adjustments with the goal of constructing the project in 2020.
