Tamarac Park Stormwater Management Pond Retrofit

York Region, in partnership with the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority and the Town of Aurora, will be retrofitting the Tamarac Park Stormwater Management Pond at the southeast corner of Henderson Drive and McClellan Way in the Town of Aurora. The project will involve cleaning and modifying the existing pond to reduce phosphorus loading to the Lake Simcoe watershed. Construction is expected to begin in early 2019.

Tamarac Park Playground Facility Upgrades

After completion of the stormwater management pond retrofit, the Town of Aurora is proposing to upgrade the existing playground by expanding the playground area, replacing the existing equipment and replacing the basketball court. Minor trail realignments will be made to provide access to the new playground area.
