Hazelgrove park is part of the East Clayton Neighbourhood Concept Plan.
The site, located between 190 and 191 Street, north of Hazelgrove Elementary, will be turned into a community park with outdoor recreation facilities and greenspace, including features for team sports, youth and children’s play.
It will be approximately 3.5 hectares (8.65 acres) in size, making it the largest park in East Clayton.
The project timeline calls for the final park design being completed in spring 2014, with construction beginning next summer.
The Nov. 19 open house runs from 6-8 pm. at Clayton Heights Secondary School, 7003 188 Street.
