Located along Matheson Blvd., Saigon Park will provide recreation opportunities for the enjoyment of residents and employees of nearby businesses and serve as a stormwater management facility through the pond in its centre.
The name “Saigon” recognizes the Vietnamese-Canadian community who found refuge in Canada when they were forced to flee Vietnam during the Fall of Saigon in April 1975.
Park features include:
- Naturalized plantings to support stormwater management and natural heritage;
- A 1-km trail with fitness stations;
- Various lookout points including a pier; and
- A public art piece entitled “A Year in Weather”.
An official opening event is planned for spring 2020. Additional project updates will be posted to this webpage as they become available.
