Recreation Current Projects
Update June 2022:
Ball diamonds are open to scheduled user groups. Landscaping work continues around the site and some areas remain fenced off. Please respect all signage and stay off areas under construction.
The first four-acre phase of the off-leash dog park opens July 1, Canada Day. The remaining eight acres are still under construction and are slated to open in 2023 once the grass is established.
We have a few rules when using the park:
- You are responsible for the behaviour of your dog. Always keep it in sight and under control
- Clean up after your dog
- Do not bring sick or aggressive dogs to the park
- Do not allow your dog to dig in the park
- Ensure the gates are closed behind you when entering and leaving the park
- Dogs must be leashed outside the park
- Respect the size recommendation of the small dog area
Thank you for following these rules to ensure everyone can enjoy the park safely
Update April 2022:
Four of five ball diamonds at the West Rec Site will receive their finishing touches in late April/early May. The city is aiming to have the diamonds ready to go by mid-May, but this will depend on how fast the spring weather allows our contractors to work.
Work on the fifth diamond will begin in May and it is anticipated it will be ready for use later this summer.
Landscaping work will be continuing around the West Rec Site so some areas will remain fenced off. Please respect all signage and stay off the areas under construction.
Ground conditions at the dog park will be evaluated this spring and depending on the condition of the sod and the amount of precipitation we get this spring, an opening date will be announced, stay tuned.
Update November 2021:
Work is wrapping up at the West Rec Space with four of five diamonds complete and trails and fencing in place at the dog park.
The four-acre dog park was recently sodded and will need time for the grass to become established. If it is opened now, the landscaping might be damaged and need to be replaced. If there is a significant snowpack during the winter, the park may be opened temporarily; however, it would need to be closed during the spring melt until the site is dry and ground conditions are evaluated. As a result, the park will not be able to open fully until mid-2022 to protect the grass from damage.
Council approved an updated plan in May 2021 for the West Recreation site that now includes five ball diamonds and a 12-acre, off-leash dog park at the City-owned 80 acre parcel in West Beaumont. Construction on the site is slated to start this June. The land is located west of the BSRC on Township road 505 on the south side.
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 the public engagement were presented to Council in September 2020. See the results of the engagement and the request for decision here.
Update April 2022:
While the work is complete on the multi-use field some pathways in Four Seasons Park are still under construction. Please respect all signage and stay away from the areas under construction. The Lions Campground entrance of the park will remain closed to accommodate the remaining work and will re-open later this summer.
Approved as part of the 2021 Budget a multi-use field will be built along with an upgraded storm facility and trail upgrades in Four Season Park.
The City of Beaumont is investing in enhanced recreation opportunities for residents. The city will be building a multi-use synthetic turf field, upgrading the trail system as well as upgrading the existing dry pond to improve flood mitigation for the park and nearby residents.
To accommodate the work a portion of Four Seasons Park will close starting late June into the Fall. The closure will include the east portion of Four Seasons including the disc golf course, volleyball court, trails on the east side of the park and a portion of Lions RV Park.
Construction is being coordinated to keep disruption to a minimum, but there may be some temporary inconvenience to residents and people who use the park. We appreciate everyone’s patience as we work to make improvements that will benefit Beaumont’s families for years to come.
