Improvements to take shape at Dr. William Bethune Park

This post, from March 23, has information on upgrades slated for Dr. William Bethune Park.

Hello Ward 8 Neighbours,

Dr. William Bethune Park, located at 60 DiCenzo Drive, is in line for a few upgrades in the coming months.

For more details, please continue reading below…

Bethune Park has been in need of some serious upgrades to the parking infrastructure for some time to accommodate those enjoying the amenities at the park, most notably Walker Outdoor Pool and the Trieste Bocce Club. In addition to the parking infrastructure, the backstops on the baseball diamonds require replacement.

At the March 21 Public Works Committee, Councillor Danko put forward the following motion, which designates $25,000 towards the replacement of the backstops and an additional $8,000 designated for parking taken from the Ward 8 Special Capital Re-investment Reserve Fund. It was passed at committee.

In addition to the improvements funded from the Ward 8 Special Capital Re-investment Reserve Fund, the annual operating impacts of $1,000 for maintenance for the parking and driveway improvements will be included in the 2022 Public Works Department base operating budget.

A full reading of the motion can be found here.
