The City of Mississauga is starting the redevelopment process of Gulleden Park and is seeking feedback from residents to understand what type of park experience and amenities could best serve the community.
We recently conducted a resident survey to understand what type of park experience and amenities could best serve the community. In reviewing the survey results, a number of submissions may have been influenced by instructions originating from an online petition for a covered rink. The survey is now closed.
A virtual targeted public meeting took place on October 19th, 2021. Nearby residents were invited to learn about the survey results and share their views on preliminary recommendations for the park’s redevelopment.
To close the loop on these engagement activities, the following reports are provided. Please follow the links below to read each report.
- Part 1 – Survey Key Findings
- Part 2- Virtual Targeted Public Meeting
- Part 3- Preliminary Programming Recommendations
There will be other opportunities to participate in the future through feedback on park designs as they evolve. To stay informed about this project, please subscribe(External link) to receive email alerts from the City.
Burnhamthorpe Community Centre renovation
The City is renovating and building a new addition to nearby Burnhamthorpe Community Centre to meet the needs of the Rathwood-Applewood community by constructing a new aquatic and fitness centre as well as improving infrastructure to address population growth and changing demographics in the area. The redevelopment will begin in spring 2021 and the community centre is anticipated to re-open in spring/summer 2023. During this time, the building and site will be closed to the public for construction.
For more information about the project including frequently asked questions, and construction timeline, please visit the project webpage(External link).
Outdoor ice rink
During the design phase for the redevelopment of the Burnhamthorpe Community Centre, it became clear that the outdoor rink would need to be removed. The removal of the rink was also supported by the fact that the outdoor rink equipment has come to the end of its lifecycle.
However, because of COVID-19 restrictions, the City has seen an increased demand for public skating, and residents have indicated a desire to replace the outdoor rink at a new location. Subject to the feedback from the public engagement for the redevelopment of Gulleden Park, the City will consider a new outdoor refrigerated skating facility as part of the planned park redevelopment.
