• New south trail for horses, north trail realignment, new central trail and overall wayfinding redevelopment
• New multi-purpose building with deep service lines, toboggan hill and winter outdoor skating rink
• Basketball court re-surfacing, playground and bike park redevelopment
• New maintenance building and yard, and a new picnic area west of existing sports field
