Ohr Menachem Park

Vaughan, Ontario

Ohr Menachem Park is a neighbourhood park located in a newly developed community within the City of Vaughan. MSA provided services and design from concept development through to final contract administration. The park provides for active recreation such as baseball, basketball, soccer and tennis while maintaining spaces for more passive activities such as leisurely strolls. Seating areas for social gatherings and a decorative gazebo provide a shady spot for watching the children enjoy the playground areas.

Gentle bio-swales with native plantings encourage slow percolation of rainwater, provide habitat for bird and butterflies and help promote eco-friendly green ideals. Simple urban design details throughout the community have been brought into the park at all entrances helping to tie the park into the fabric of the neighbourhood.
