What We Learned

An online survey regarding the Munster Community Park concept plan was conducted on Engage Ottawa from 16 November – 10 December. Thank you to everyone that provided their input on the play equipment options for the park. The summary of the public comments and responses is provided below:

  • Can the second tennis court have 2 pickleball courts painted on it?
    1. Staff have reviewed the layout and available space. Staff are concerned that the space will be too tight, and have concerns that since the tennis net will have to stay in place, it may cause more of a safety concern (tripping / running into the net).
  • Can a division be provided between the 6 courts lengthwise.
    1. There is insufficient space.
  • Can an acrylic surface be provided?
    1. Acrylic surfacing is not provided by the City. It does not prolong the life of the courts nor the playability of the courts. The city a fine grade of asphalt as a final surfacing.
  • There is opposition to building more / additional courts as it would interfere with other uses in the park.
    1. This proposal does not include any expansion.

Following the completion of the public tender process, an update regarding the construction timeline will be posted to engage Ottawa.




The City of Ottawa is seeking input the lifecycle replacement of the asphalt tennis courts at Alfred Taylor Park.

According to the Strategic Asset Management Plan (2017), the Ageing Assets Strategy states that “to maintain levels of service over time and to remain sustainable, not all assets should or can be replaced before reaching the end of their expected service life.”

Therefore, the scope of the current lifecycle replacement project is specific to rebuilding the 4 tennis courts as follows:

  • Maintain two full tennis courts with both tennis and pickleball lines closest to the parking lot.
  • The other two existing tennis courts shall be converted to 6 pickleball courts.
  • The addition of chain link fencing between the tennis and pickleball courts is proposed.
  • A new accessible route and seating shall be included in the SOW.

A proposed concept plan is located in the Document Library on this page. Residents are invited to provide comments through the survey.

A summary of public comments will be posted to this website upon completion of the public consultation.

Construction to commence 2024, pending budget approval.
