Existing Trails could be upgraded and formalized to improve linkages to adjacent lands
The hydro corridor to the south can provide land for connecting pathways through the parkland and
between communities
A possible formal playground could be included within the Woodward Avenue view shed, with
visibility to and from the neighbourhood

New Residential Area

The naturalized character of the park could be preserved and enhanced to maintain nature

Challenges:
There are few suitable locations for traditional park amenities due to poor visibility from adjacent
neighbourhoods and roads

The purpose of this plan is to identify existing opportunities and constraints to guide the
development of a master plan for this Parkland Area.

Existing vegetative buffers to residential areas should be maintained and enhanced to ensure privacy
for residents
Poor soil and vegetation limits the quality of the park experience
Park configuration limits use of land for active sports fields
pathway linkages to the south, east and west are under Ontario Hydro jurisdiction

RECREATION SERVICES PLAN 2012:


GOAL:

existing vegetation
serves as a buffer to
adjacent residential lots

The Goal for this project is to undertake a site-specific master plan for the
existing Woodland Acres Open Space parcel to determine the preferred layout
and amenity level of the park.

OBJECTIVES:
1. Connect to the new subdivision along Woodland Drive and existing
University Heights subdivision.

2. Capitalize on the large easement associated with the hydro right-of way to
attain active transportation goals of the Recreation Services Plan and offer
a connection to the Peterborough riverfront and Trent University.

3. Provide opportunities for a pathway, small unstructured open space,


playground and seating areas, landscaped amenities and/or naturalized
buffers.
4. Improve the park entrance along Woodward Avenue and formalize
connections to new Woodland Drive Neighbourhood.
