Hawthorne Play Area

The Town of Riverview is developing a new park and community space on Hawthorne Drive. Working with neighbourhood residents and consultants, the Department of Parks, Recreation and Community Relations will enhance the existing area to create an outdoor space for active recreation and relaxation.

Community Consultation

Residents and stakeholders were invited to a planning session to brainstorm ideas for the planned park development in September 2013. A few months later, a concept plan was presented to the public for feedback. Click the links below to open and view images from the presentation. 

Planned Construction

A design and construction plan for the redevelopment of the playground was finalized by Virdis Design Studio and accepted by Council. The construction tender documents were prepared and J. K. Fraser and Son Ltd. was selected to complete phase one of a two phase project.

Also in 2014, along with contributions from the Government of New Brunswick, Town Council provided funding to complete phase two, and in 2015, phase two tender documents were prepared with J. K. Fraser being selected to complete the project.

The project was completed in October 2015.
