Town receives $15 million from developers for North Park

The town has received $15 million from Great Gulf Group, Mattamy Homes and Trinison Management in fulfilment of the 2006 North Oakville Secondary Plan settlement agreement. The money is allocated towards the development and construction of North Park, including the newly opened Sixteen Mile Sports Complex located on Neyagawa Boulevard just north of Dundas Street.

As part of this agreement, this group of developers had agreed to fund the early construction of community facilities at North Park by way of a $10 million pre-payment of development charges and an additional $5 million voluntary contribution to the town.

“North Park will be the cornerstone of Oakville’s newest neighbourhoods north of Dundas Street,” said Mayor Rob Burton. “The fulfilment of this agreement shows a dedication to putting the community first.”

Great Gulf Group, Mattamy Homes and Trinison Management echoed the Mayor’s comments by saying: “We’re proud to continue our partnership with the town. The new North Park facilities contribute significantly to the creation of vibrant and innovative neighbourhoods, as well as being an important community centre for Oakville residents. We are pleased to be contributing to it.”

Sixteen Mile Sports Complex, a 196,000 square foot state-of-the-art quad pad arena, opened in September 2010 as part of the first phase of North Park. This fully-accessible facility features one Olympic-sized ice pad with seamless glass and seating for 1,500 spectators, three NHL-sized ice pads, 22 change rooms, two multi-purpose community rooms, two practice pads and a full-service restaurant.

In addition, two full-size soccer pitches, located immediately north of the new Sixteen Mile Sports Complex will be lit and in operation later this year.

Once completed, North Park will feature additional soccer fields, a splash pad, children’s playground, a skateboard park, a BMX track, a community centre and a library.
