From 2007 to 2011, high-level plans for the Lewis Farms Facility and Park were created from the vision outlined in the Recreation Facility Master Plan and Medium Term Recreation Facility and Sports Field Plan.

In 2014, City Council approved funding for the schematic design of the Lewis Farms Facility and Park. In each phase you participated in the following engagement activities: open house, online survey, stakeholder meetings and internal staff engagement activities. Participation during each engagement ranged between 500 -1000 persons.

In 2017, City Council approved funding for the next phase of design and public and stakeholder engagement will continue.

Each phase of engagement is planned so your feedback directly informs the next phase of design. At the same time, we share how your involvement shapes the evolution of the design. Open communication and transparency are important and we will continue to highlight the decisions as they are made as well as the rationale for those decisions. The outcomes of each engagement are instrumental in identifying your needs and will continue to shape the design of the facility and park.

Lewis Farms Setting the Direction engagement image

October - December 2016

Following Exploring Options, the facility and site concepts were refined to form a draft schematic design for the facility and the overall site. We shared the draft schematic designs in the Setting the Direction consultation. You were asked about your satisfaction with the design and whether you felt the design meets the needs of the community. You were also asked about your preference between a 53m pool and green space. Your feedback was used to finalize the schematic design for the facility and park.

June 2016

Your next opportunity to get involved was during the Exploring Options phase in early 2016, focusing on a review of the concept design options. During this engagement, we showed some concept options and we asked you to identify what you liked, didn’t like, and if you had any suggested changes. We also asked about the potential addition of a 7.5m & 10m dive platform; enhancement of the 25m pool to a 53m pool; and the potential inclusion of universal change rooms. The information collected in this phase was used to create a draft schematic design.
