Wallace Park is an existing neighbourhood park in Ward 3.
It is one of a number of parks and open space blocks near the former hospital site. In 2018, the Parks and Open Space Department initiated public consultations for the redevelopment of these park areas – this study was referred to as the ‘Southeast Campus of Parks’ study. It included Wallace Park, Wyndham Parkette, Brantwood Park, the new Oakville/Trafalgar Park and the civic space beside the old Oakville Trafalgar High School.
At that time, a preferred concept plan for Wallace Park was developed by MBTW, in consultation with local residents and Councillors.
Following the Council’s approval of 2020 budget, this project went into detailed design. In May 2020, the Parks and Open Space Department retained a consulting team led by OMC Landscape Architecture to further develop the preferred concept plan.
