Lighting around the park’s pathways was upgraded and expanded in late spring , and as days get shorter, residents and visitors are enjoying the new lights.

“During our installation, we met with a lot of people who walk the park daily,” says Stan Hum, Project Technologist with the City’s Infrastructure & Municipal Works Department. “The feedback on the new lights has been overwhelmingly positive. People are able to walk at night with a sense of security.”

As part of the project, 47 lights were retrofitted and 86 new lights installed, significantly enhancing the enjoyment of the pathways at night.

“Lamoureux Park is a hub of the city. It brings together community,” says Mr. Hum. “People of all walks of life can enjoy the park. It just makes Cornwall a better place.”

The pathway project complements previous light enhancement projects at the Civic Complex, Marina 200, Cornwall Community Museum and the Clock Tower.

“This project aimed to improve the accessibility, safety, and multi-season uses in Lamoureux Park,” says James Fawthrop, Manager of Recreation and Facilities.  “All new lights are energy efficient LED fixtures using the most environmentally responsible technology available.”
