The city is looking for input from residents about the current state of the parks, and how they can be improved and enhanced.

Kin Park has six baseball diamonds, a playground, an outdoor green gym, a BMX bike track, concession stand, outdoor ice rink, and washrooms. The road running along the west side of the park is need of upgrades and redeveloping the park may impact some amenities, the city says.

Surerus Park has eight baseball diamonds, two soccer fields, tennis courts, horseshoe pits, a playground, clubhouse, walking trails, and washrooms.

The city is developing new site plans for both parks simultaneously. Once approved by council, any funding for upgrades and redevelopment will be subject to capital budget planning.

The open house takes place Tuesday, May 28 at the North Peace Cultural Centre from 5 to 8 p.m. Interactive workshops are planned at Kin Park from 5:30 to 6:30, and at Surerus from 6:45 to 7:45.

The city will launch a public survey after the open house.
