Southdale Park

In the mid 1980s, the developer of a new subdivision in the Southdale area dedicated the required five percent of the land for parkland purposes. At a series of public meetings in 1987 and 1988, area residents made clear their collective desire to see a large neighbourhood park established as soon as possible. A two‑stage development plan for Southdale Park was approved by City Council and by late 1989, Southdale Park was complete. Recently, Southdale Park has undergone some redevelopment with new playground equipment, the soccer field and baseball diamond have been removed, and the pathway has been completed into a full loop around the park with excavated soil being added to the toboggan hill.
