Upon funding approval, Hawrelak Park will be temporarily closing in 2023 for rehabilitation.

Project Update - October 2022

Detailed design is complete for the deep utility scope of work and continues to progress for the remaining scopes of work for the project. Detailed design is anticipated to be fully complete by spring 2023. Construction is planned to begin on the deep utility work in spring 2023, pending funding approval. 

Full park closure for up to 3 years is necessary for safety due to the extent of the rehabilitation work.  Park closure will likely begin in spring 2023. A closure date will be established once funding is approved as part of the Fall budget deliberations and timelines are established. The closure will occur after the 2023 Silver Skate Festival.
