Albert Street Park Master Plan


Albert Street Park is located in Ward 2, in close proximity to the Old Fort. It is a Neighbourhood Park that serves the Lakeshore Neighbourhood. The park was constructed in the 1970s and contains an informal baseball diamond, a tennis court, a ball hockey court and a small play structure. The Albert Street Park has been identified for improvement and upgrades, so the park will better serve the needs of the community.

 

The first step in this process is to develop a park master plan that will guide future investment, in consultation with the local park users. The park master plan will commence in late 2018, with the intent to replace the park playground in 2019 with other improvements to follow.

 

Community consultation will occur through a series of public open houses – the first of which will seek ideas for improvement and the second will present options for development. Meeting invitations will be mailed to property owners within 150 meters of the park, will be advertised in the Fort Erie Post and on the Town’s social media pages, and mailed to anyone who expresses an interest in writing to the Town.
