On Sept 1 council approved the reallocation of funds that were in the 2020 capital budget for the construction of a ball diamond in Milieu Parc as well as additional funds to be used for the design and construction of 4 ball diamonds and off-leash park at the City-owned 80 acre parcel in West Beaumont. The land is located west of the BSRC on Township road 505 on the south side. The project is moving into the detailed design with the intention to begin construction of road access, service road, parking area and an off-leash area fall 2020. The construction of the 4 ball diamonds will follow alongside and continue into 2021.
This is very exciting news for Beaumont and continues our work to meet the needs outlined in the Our Places and Play - Recreation, Parks and Facilities Master Plan.
The City completed a public engagement process on these changes from July 31 to August 11, 2020. A recording of a webinar that was completed for this engagement is available here. The findings of this public engagement will be presented to Council later in 2020. More updates on this process can be found on the Council Meeting agendas and minutes page.
This summer the city will be completing upgrades on the small playground on Rosemount Blvd. The project will include adding trees to the park to enhance privacy for the surrounding residents and one new piece of equipment.
We conducted a survey to determine what piece of new equipment residents preferred. Residents overwhelmingly voted for the rotating climbing net.
The new equipment will be installed shortly and the playground will be closed during the work. Here is a preview of what the playground will look like including the new trees.
In 2019 the City of Beaumont removed the basketball court which was located on top of the water reservoir for safety reasons. In 2020 will be replacing the basketball court with a new multi-use asphalt surface court just south of last year’s construction. This new site will be created for our residents to be able to play both basketball and ball hockey. It will also be fenced off similar to the previous location. Click here to see the proposed plans. If you have any feedback or questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Northeast corner of 57 Street & 48 Avenue. Just south of the original basketball court.
- Mid-July to Mid-September
Proposed Basketball Court Location
A new Culvert bridge will be installed by the concession on Four Seasons Park similar to the one installed in 2018 by the Lions RV Park. The new bridge will be safer for residents, and will allow City snow removal and grass cutting equipment to cross the bridge without damaging the bridge.

- Week of August 10 to late August

The work will start this summer and is scheduled to be completed this fall. The city has identified different concepts for each rink here are the options for each rink:
