Playground Elements Survey

In March 2020, the Town conducted a survey on possible playground elements. Thank you to everyone who provided their input regarding preferred playground elements. Feedback gathered was used as a guide in the equipment selection proposed by playground suppliers.

Construction

Construction of the new Rathdown Park playground started mid-September 2020 and was completed in early October 2020.

In 2018, the Town of Sidney worked to develop a concept plan for Rathdown Park. This plan is intended to provide future goals for the park, which the Town can work towards over the next few years. You can visit the Park Concept Plan project page for additional information.
