Summary

The most listed activities were skating related, with 146 people saying skating/skate and 53 people specifically mentioning hockey. 

 

Some mentioned a separate skating track.

While many people mentioned soccer and baseball, we must mention that the soccer fields and baseball diamond at the site are city owned/maintained and not part of the proposed activity hub. They remain a valuable piece of infrastructure in our community and will not be affected by the Outdoor Activity Hub development. 

Tennis was also mentioned by many residents. CHPH already has City-Owned Tennis Courts within its boundaries. The twin courts are located at 5804 Patina Drive SW and were upgraded in 2020 to include Pickleball lines, making them multi-purpose. 

While not noted in the first round of feedback, it is a priority for the CA to have this space be accessible for all users regardless of mobility, so a priority will be including pathways leading through the space.

Community Engagement Phase 2

In April we sought feedback from the community on the conceptual design of the proposed activity hub. We received 323 responses and a summary of the responses are below.
