Town looking for feedback for playground options

The Town of Saugeen Shores is upgrading the playground equipment at three parks in addition to designing the future footprint for Summerside Park, a new park located in the new housing development at the north end of Port Elgin on Devonshire Street.

While Town staff has reviewed proposals from play equipment suppliers and narrowed down the options, they would now like to hear from the community to help choose playground equipment by completing a short online survey..

The survey will include playground equipment options for the following parks whose existing equipment is shown below:

  • Nodwell Park, 788 Highland Street, Port Elgin 
  • Waterloo Park, 391 Waterloo Street, Port Elgin
  • JH Robertson Park, 639 Pierson Avenue, Port Elgin
  • Summerside Park, proposed for corner of Bruce and Devonshire Streets, Port Elgin

The public can learn more about the projects, see the potential options, and have their say by completing the online survey at The survey will be open until August 15 at 11:55pm.

The Town encourages the playground experts, the youngest residents, to get involved in what they would like to see. 

“We have an active community in Saugeen Shores. How our parks and playgrounds are designed should reflect the community,” says Mayor Luke Charbonneau. “Having an online survey is a great way for residents to have their say on the playground equipment they would most like to see.”

The preferred designs will be announced at Saugeen Shores Council and online before construction begins in the fall of 2021.
