The Review - September 20th Edition


The Town of The Blue Mountains has launched a survey to gather initial feedback from the community regarding the revitalization of Moreau Park in Thornbury. The Town is looking to the community for input identifying priorities to be considered for the park. The information gathered through the survey will be used to help inform the initial design concepts which will be presented to the community for comment in the next stage of consultation in late 2023 or early 2024.

“We have a rare opportunity here to revitalize one of the Town’s primary parks with the assistance of our community partners at the Thornbury-Clarksburg Rotary Club,” said Ryan Gibbons, Director of Community Services. “We’re looking forward to working with the public and all of our user groups to re-imagine Moreau Park in a way that makes it accessible for every member of our community.”

The questionnaire can be completed until October 15, 2023 and can be accessed directly via the link below.

Paper copies are available upon request by calling (519) 599-3131 ext. 302 or through pickup at Town Hall and The Blue Mountains Public Library.

About the Moreau Park Revitalization Project

The Thornbury-Clarksburg Rotary Club approached Town Council in September of 2022 with the concept of revitalizing Moreau Park in Thornbury under the theme, “Kindness at Play.” The elements proposed included a new skate park for all ages and abilities, a year-round paved walking path, a sensory garden and an accessible playground. Council directed staff to include this project for consideration as an addition to the 2023 Town budget.

This project presents a larger opportunity for the Town to consider incorporating additional recreational elements that have been identified through the Town’s Leisure Activity Plan and Resident Satisfaction Survey. Additionally, previously approved or proposed projects including construction of a permanent, covered pavilion with washroom facilities, and resurfacing of the baseball diamonds could be included in this project.

It's anticipated that the funding for construction will be presented in the 2025 Town Budget, with construction commencing in 2025.

For more information about the project and to complete the questionnaire, please visit the Town's dedicated project web page.
