Dun Skipper Park is a proposed 0.8 ha parkette located at 69 Dun Skipper Drive in Leitrim. The park is located in the Pathways at Findlay Creek and the Pathways South at Findlay Creek subdivisions. The park straddles the boundary between Ward 20 (Osgoode) and Ward 22 (Gloucester – South Nepean).

Dun Skipper Park is bounded by Dun Skipper Drive to the north and Kijik Crescent to the south. A servicing block and residential uses are located to the west, and residential uses are located to the east.

Proposed amenities for Dun Skipper Park include the following: swings with 2 belt seats, 2 bucket seats and a saucer swing, junior and senior playground equipment, a shade umbrella table, a park identification sign, benches, a waste receptacle, asphalt pathways and landscape planting.

The City has received requests for tennis / pickleball courts in the southern part of Leitrim. Space has been identified on the concept plan to accommodate the potential future development of double tennis / pickleball courts in response to these requests. The scope and budget of the Dun Skipper Park project does not include the design and construction of the courts. Future City funding would be required to develop public courts at the park.

The park and playground will be developed in accordance with the City’s Accessibility Design Standards.

You can access the Conceptual Landscape Plan for the park in the Document Library on the right side of the page. The community is invited to provide comments on the proposed concept plan and playground equipment.

Please provide comments on the concept plan to Burl.Walker@ottawa.ca by August 12, 2022.
