Coyote Trail Park

Location: Ottawa ON. / Completed 2018 

Client: City of Ottawa 

Coyote Trail Park is a new 3.1-hectare community park located on a ridge terrace just above the Cardinal Creek community storm pond and creek. Site attributes include an existing indigenous forest of white pine, spruce, trembling aspen, birch, maple, and poplar that surround and envelop the site. A primary Hydro corridor runs through the middle of the site and colossal metal utility towers act as landmarks and sundials. Thoughtful park design amplified viewsheds to the storm pond and community and introduced the following amenities, a fitness trail with adult oriented exercise stations, a large fenced off-leash dog area with a custom dog bench, tennis courts, nature trails, picnic area, multi-use playing field, two shade structure and native plantings.
