Tucana Park Update September 4, 2012

Hooray ! The construction started last week on Tucana Park. Hopefully, the weather will continue to be nice so construction can proceed quickly. We are looking for a completion date of end of October.

Tucana Park Update August 24, 2012

Many neighbours have been asking about the start date for the construction of the park.

I received this information from Louise Cerveny via Jan Harder's office.

The construction of Tucana Park will commence next week with heavy equipment moving onto the site mid-week. I informed the community in June that construction would begin in mid August. The tender closed 2 weeks ago. The contractor awarded the project is D&G Landscaping. They are required to obtain bonding and liability insurance for each project and this can sometimes delay the start up date. We estimate that the construction will be 90% complete by the end of October (weather permitting). I have included a copy of the final concept Drawing in addition to the Landscape and 60% submission Planting Plan drawing, identical to the tender drawing.

Tucana Park Revised Concept

I have learned from the City of Ottawa Park Planning Department that the purchase order for playground equipment was signed today so it will be 8-10 weeks before it arrives. The preparation of the park land will commence on Monday August 20.
