Some of the play equipment at Harrington Park is up for renewal. In order to put together an initial landscape plan for the park, the City Council would like to find out how the park is currently being used, and what type of activities people in the community would like to do there.

The 'Our Riccarton, Our Community, Let’s Have Fun' community day is one of the highlights of the year in our neighbourhood. The day-long event is a wonderful opportunity for people new to the district and long-time residents to meet and make friends, and enjoy an afternoon of free activities.
