Town seeking feedback on Milt Dunnell Field revitalization project

Survey available until June 16, 2023

One of the Stonetown’s most beloved outdoor spaces is set for a refresh.

The Town of St. Marys is currently developing a long-term master plan to enhance Milt Dunnell Field. The goal is to improve accessibility, increase usability and attract more people to the park.

Two conceptual designs have been proposed for the space based on feedback from local user groups. The designs are now being turned over to the public for further input through a survey, available at and Town facilities.

“The design concepts are a way to start the discussion,” says André Morin, Director of Corporate Services. “We want to understand the types of amenities people would like to see in the park,” he says.

Input from the public will be used to create a master plan for the park. That plan will be shared with experts like the Upper Thames River Conservation Authority, who will help to ensure that the design is feasible, sustainable, and achievable, given that the park is in a floodplain.

“The final design may look very different or very similar to the concepts, depending on the feedback we receive and the recommendations we get from our external partners,” says Morin.

The master plan for Milt Dunnell Field will go to Town Council for approval and will be implemented in a phased approach over the next several years, pending grant funding.

The survey is open until June 16, 2023. Paper copies are available at Town facilities; completed surveys can be submitted in person or by mail (Town of St. Marys, P.O Box 998, St. Marys, ON, N4X 1B6).
