Norton Community Park

Norton Community Park is at the northeast corner of Tim Dobbie Drive and Dundas Street in the Alton Community, located directly across the street from the new Alton Community Centre and Library. 

The leash free park is open for use.  Most of the surface has been covered with 2 inches of mulch which contains a low mow (dormant) seed mixture in an effort to establish grass early next spring.  The low mow grass has proven successful in other municipal leash free parks and is an alternative to wood chips throughout. 

Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
