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. These elements will be evaluated through a multi-stage community consultation program consisting of initial surveying and engagement to establish priorities, followed by an evaluation of conceptual designs.
It's anticipated that the funding for construction will be presented in the 2025 Town budget, with construction commencing in 2025.
The Thornbury-Clarksburg Rotary Club has partnered with the Town to revitalize Moreau Park. The existing playground equipment is approaching the end of its useful life, so this is a good opportunity to revitalize the entire space under a single, holistic approach.
