Look of redesigned Burlington park will be decided by public vote


Published January 3, 2024 at 8:58 pm

The public has had a say on what features they would like to see in a Burlington park, now it will decide how that park will ultimately look.

Voting is now open for participants to choose from the different concepts proposed for Port Nelson Park.

The park is located on the lakefront at the foot of Guelph Line.

After undergoing extensive shoreline protection work last year, the redesign of the park will take shape based on the suggestions made by the public months ago.

The concepts presented include the layout of the park complete with where certain aspects of the landscaping should be placed.

Also, the public will get to choose between two playground themes — a logger’s port or a lighthouse keeper’s cabin.

The type of components the park will contain including benches, lights, signage and other fixtures will also be open to the vote.

Voting will be open until Jan. 21 and the work to complete the park is expected to take place later this year.
