Master Plan

The Town of Wolfville has just embarked on a master plan exercise for East End Gateway, encompassing Willow Park trail connections, and the leased Nova Scotia Power land on the opposite side of Main Street. The master plan will aim to create a sense of arrival and place, create a welcoming space for people entering the town via Main Street, review and make recommendations regarding recreational uses of the site, improvements to trail connections throughout the area, and creation of a public open space that reflects the unique landscape of Wolfville and surroundings. The resulting design will provide the Town of Wolfville with a plan that can be implemented in stages over time.

The consultant for this project, Ekistics Plan + Design, is seeking your input on what will make this site a successful Gateway site and public space for local residents and visitors alike. We appreciate the 5 minutes of your time it will take to complete this survey.
