Kenmount Terrace Community Park

Kenmount Terrace Community Park

The City of St. John's is planning for the development of a new community park off Messenger Drive in Kenmount Terrace. This new park covers 32 acres and is the first new community park for the City in many years. This new park is in keeping with plans outlined by the City of St. John's in the Open Spaces Master Plan released in December 2014 and the Recreation and Parks Master Plan released in 2009.

The City brought together a group of residents in the area to help guide the public engagement process to determine the needs within the community and to make a recommendation on a concept plan to Council.

During March and April 2015, the City of St. John's undertook a public engagement process to gather ideas for a new park in the Kenmount Terrace area. This What we Heard document reflects what was heard throughout that processthrough a variety of activities including focus groups with kids in the area, discussions with the steering committee, a public workshop and a survey. The ideas generated were used as the concept plan was developed. 

In June 2015, Council approved the concept plan. For details check out the video or view the design sketches.
