Jubilee Park Opening Delayed

Jubilee Park Opening Delayed

I recently asked city staff when Jubilee Park (11 Sweeney Drive, near Arbour Vista PS) would be opened and received the following response:

As you know winter descended upon us without warning this year; sadly that was 3 weeks ago, and a couple of weeks too soon.  Since then our site work has been limited, but we are still making progress.  As a result, it does not look like we will be able to make substantial completion for a few weeks – which may then postpone the opening to spring.  Per contract law, we cannot open (or take assumption) of the site until substantial completion (97%) is achieved. 

That said, we had committed to folks that we would at the very least provide a walkway connection to the school grounds before the winter.  Just yesterday we were able to finalize the details of the walkway connection, and expect to have it ready next week. 

In the meantime, we will continue to make what progress we can and open the site just as soon as it is feasible.
