GSP Group led the preparation of an Urban Design Study for the Barton-Tiffany area in the West Harbour District of Hamilton. Using the design principles recommended in the study and in the Central Park Design Guidelines, GSP Group is building upon the design concept preferred by City Council, to develop a detailed plan for the park that includes a revitalized layout of park amenities, roadway connections, seating, active and passive recreation, splash pad, playground, dog park, community gardens, and landscape treatments.
GSP Group is working with the City to develop a plan to ensure a seamless collaboration between design, and the City’s plans for soil remediation.
GSP Group is also completing a full Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design report, tree inventory, and a barrier-free design review of the proposed park, to ensure good visibility, safety and accessibility for park users.
Construction is expected to be completed in 2019.
