Tyandaga – the city owned golf course in the west end of the city – could be put to even better use. It is currently an 18 hole course from April to November, the green space is used as an 18-hole golf course. From November to March, it is enjoyed by residents for tobogganing, cross-country skiing, dog walking and more.

Tayandaga – a recreational facility the city would like to get more out of; looking to the public for ideas.

The city thinks even more can be done with the space and is looking to the citizens for ideas and input; what recreational ideas residents have to further enhance what already exists at Tyandaga. We want to know what residents value about this expansive green space and explore ideas to make it even more vibrant. The City is looking for ideas related to the golf program and ideas related to the year-round park space.

Given that we are currently in a virtual world the city will hold a virtual meeting and invite you to submit questions.

These sessions will be recorded. The link to the sessions can be found at getinvolvedburlington.ca/tyandaga.

City-wide: Oct. 27, 7 to 8 p.m.

Tyandaga Residents: Nov. 4, 7 to 8 p.m.

There is also an online survey.

Residents, golfers and the Tyandaga community are encouraged to also complete the online survey found at getinvolvedburlington.ca/tyandaga. The short survey is open now until Nov. 6, 2020.

    Pleases, please, please don’t pave it and put more houses or high rise buildings there. Please.

    When the residents are asked for their input, in this case “how the Tyandaga Golf Course could be put to better use” typically this means that the city wants to repurpose the area.

    It would be much more transparent if the City indicated why they feel that the golf course is not profitable, and suggest some alternate plans for the area, rather than asking “for resident input”.

    It will be interesting to see how Council deals with this.
