Chippewa Park Visioning Project

Chippewa Park Visioning Project logoPROJECT BACKGROUND
The City of Thunder Bay has engaged FOTENN Planning + Design to help create a renewed vision for Chippewa Park, one of Thunder Bay’s most treasured landmarks. This project will guide municipal investment over the short and medium term and establish updated priorities and programming for the park. Building on the Chippewa Park Master Plan completed in 2000, this project will evaluate the Park’s current programming and infrastructure to determine a preferred concept plan for its future use.

The final concept plan will foster:

  • Improved natural and built environments
  • Enhanced recognition of our collective heritage
  • Updated recreational facilities
  • Vested public interest in the well-being of this community space

This project commenced in December 2015 and will continue over the next 6-9 months, with anticipated completion in late summer/fall 2016.

ENGAGEMENT OPPORTUNITIES
Members of the public are encouraged to share their feedback through various opportunities as the project progresses:
