The park is bounded by Rennie's Mill Road, Circular Road, Bannerman Road and Military Road. The park was formed on land set aside for public use by Governor Bannerman in 1864. Bannerman Park remains a well used and attractive park, and a good example of 19th century public park design, reflecting the British parks of that time.
The Bannerman Park Master Plan was completed in 2003 and sets out a program of recommendations for the upgrading and use of the park in keeping with its character and the aims of the community. The first section of this document briefly describes the planning process which has led to the formulation of this plan and highlights key findings from the site assessment and public consultation. The main body of the report details the physical improvements and program activities recommended for the park. The final section sets out the costs and suggested sequence for the implementation of the recommended improvements.
Bannerman Park Foundation
The Bannerman Park Foundation was formed in 2010 to implement the Bannerman Park Master Plan, approved by City Council in 2005 after extensive public consultation. Completion of the park revitalization plan will cost approximately $6 million. The Foundation's goal is to raise $3 million, with the City matching funds raised dollar-for-dollar. All donations are eligible for tax receipts.
The Bannerman Park Foundation is a volunteer committee of citizens devoted to revitalizing Bannerman Park and restoring it as a cherished city landmark for future generations.
