St. Andrew's Park Improvements

Construction Starts June 2021

We're replacing existing features and relocating 'The Living Ruin' granite public art piece. Work begins in June 2021 and should be completed by the fall. Note: no full closures of the park are planned, though from time to time some areas may be temporarily closed.

We’re making improvements to St. Andrew’s Park, including repairing the water play pump, boardwalk, trails, and other park amenities.

One of our goals is to provide a variety of seating options catering to all ages. With that in mind, we’re relocating the 'Living Ruin' granite public art piece to provide additional central seating in the park. We're also installing a new water fountain with a bottle fill station to help keep everyone hydrated while they play! Learn more about the current project.

About St. Andrew's Park

St. Andrew's Park is located just east of St. Georges and East 11th Street. The park is fully fenced with access gates to the north and south. There are a variety of large trees and natural plantings, with lots of room to roam. The park has large sand play areas and is encircled by a paved path. A portable toilet is available onsite.  

In August 2017, the City implemented improvements to St. Andrew’s Park, based on input received from public consultation and feedback. Artificial turf was added to the central lawn area to allow for safer and extended play.

New turf at St Andrews Park

We met with over a hundred people at our open house in June of 2014, and received numerous surveys and comments online. Based on the input we received, we developed a high-level plan of small park improvements that could be implemented in St. Andrew’s Park.

Due to other high priority City-wide projects taking place over the next couple of years, the park improvements will be need to be completed over the coming years, including a number of small improvements this year. Specifically, we are creating some solutions for toy storage in the park this summer.

All of the information previously gathered is very valuable to moving forward with this project, and we thank those who shared their feedback for their interest in St. Andrew’s. We'll continue to maintain the park to a high standard and to be vigilant about the safety of the playgrounds and surrounding features.
