The first meeting to review the conceptual plans for Tucana Park was held March 5. Forty seven neighbours attended to hear Louise Cerveny, Park Planner, City of Ottawa and Jack Copeland, Landscape Architect discuss the park features.

The park will contain 2 play areas, I junior tot lot for children 18 months-5 years and 1 senior tot lot for 5-12 year olds. These two areas will include contemporary play structures with a web climber and swings.

There will also be benches, a gazebo and a picnic table. The remainder of the park space will be landscaped with ornamental grasses, low shrubs and trees surrounding a central grassed area.

Construction is expected to start in June 2012 and be completed by September 2012, weather permitting.

Access to water and hoses will be available if the neighbours would like a Puddle Rink for skating in the winter.

The neighbours that attended the meeting voted unanimously to have signs “No Dogs Allowed” posted in the park as there are several parks nearby for dogs.
