Tell us your vision for Esquimalt Gorge Park and Saxe Point

Join us for an engaging open house on Wednesday, September 11.

What is the open house all about?

After undertaking two rounds of public engagement, we used the resulting community feedback to create a list of themed projects to consider for funding using the McLoughlin Point Amenity Reserve Funds. Over the next several months, we will be continuing engagement by refining some of the proposed ideas.

This open house is looking at two areas in particular: Saxe Point and Esquimalt Gorge Park. Your feedback will help give direction to Esquimalt council on future project funding decisions for these parks.

Saxe Point

We have preliminary concept designs for the proposed boardwalk and trail system. We’re inviting you to let us know if we’re on the right track.

Esquimalt Gorge Park multi-purpose building

We’re looking for feedback on preliminary design concepts, exterior features and programming ideas.

Esquimalt Gorge Park—Master Plan

A master plan helps guide the future growth and use of the park. In this open house, we want to hear your thoughts on proposed future enhancements, for example a picnic shelter or paddle boat dock.

Esquimalt Gorge Park—dog park

We’re looking for your ideas on how best to divide the space, if at all, as well as on design concepts.

Who should be there?

While we’re strongly encouraging Esquimalt residents to attend, everyone is welcome.

I can’t make it. Will there be other opportunities?

Yes, you may view the boards and take the survey online starting Tuesday, September 10 or join us for our second open house on Thursday, September 19 at Esquimalt Recreation Centre from 6 to 8 p.m.

For the September 19 open house, we’re pleased to provide child minding by Esquimalt Recreation staff to make attendance easier for parents.
