The casual enjoyment of the portion of the David A. Balfour Park on top of the Rosehill Reservoir will not change after upgrades are completed.
The existing reflecting pools will not be reinstated as they could damage the new waterproofing membrane. Additionally, the washroom building will be rebuilt in a slightly different location to protect the reservoir.
A Heritage Impact Assessment of Rosehill Reservoir was completed and includes an assessment of the heritage value of the Centennial Monument, water features, the washroom building, and other elements and offers recommendations on their preservation or replacement. The project team is aware of the significance of the Centennial Monument and will preserve the sculpture at a new location within the reservoir site. The results of the Heritage Impact Assessment will be shared at a fall public open house.
More details of the design will be available at the public open house.
