We’ll start with the Disclaimer – Yes this is a sponsored post, but this just means we’re able to tell you about all the great things happening at Waterloo Park!

 

In June when we mentioned that Waterloo Park was making some big changes thanks to #TDCommonGround. The #TDCommonGround Project is an initiative by TD to revitalize green spaces across Canada in recognition of Canada’s 150th birthday.  The infographic below, based on the findings from the TD GreenSights report, shows why green spaces are important to each community.

 

Together TD and The City of Waterloo are creating change in Waterloo Park to improve both pedestrian and bicycle traffic throughout the park.  One way this will be accomplished is by the construction of an additional bridge in the park.  The twinning of the Silver Lake bridge will help people get to their destinations in the park in a convenient way.  Another project that is being worked on is a dedicated cycling lane which will serve as a safe route for those on bicycles to ride through the park and avoid hazards pedestrians walking by.  The final upgrade is for a refreshed park entranceway to welcome all those coming to Waterloo Park.

Today we are glad to report that the project is underway and you can look forward to seeing the changes in 2018.

Things Are Coming Together to Help You Get Together @ Waterloo Park

For those of you not familiar with Waterloo Park, it is a wonderful gathering place where everyone can spend time in the City of Waterloo.  There are playgrounds, picnic areas, sports fields and even animals in the park.  It is a great place to spend some time alone or get together with others.

With the completion of the Light Rail Transit system and the upgrades to Waterloo Park in 2018 it is sure to be a historic year for the City of Waterloo!
