CPSC Park Location Map

Proposal

The City has submitted a Schematic Development Plan application SDP-8275-2019. This application proposes the development of a 9.54-acre park with parking, community gardens, a bicycle skills course, open space, pavilions, a playground, fitness pods, and a welcome plaza.

A new parking lot will be constructed at the park’s west boundary. Vehicular access to the park will be through the drive that extends from Darnestown Road. Pedestrians will be able to access the site from Darnestown Road via a path that will be located parallel to the access drive into the park. Pedestrians will also be able to access the park from Marsh Lane. A Ride-On bus stop is located on Darnestown Road at the park entrance.
