The park located at 609 Richmond Street was named "John (Jack) Purdie Park" through Bylaw no. 2274, passed in 1992. Jack Purdie was recognized for his devotion to many minor sports teams in Amherstburg and 40 years of service to the Royal Canadian Legion. Part of this was as Zone Commander and District Chairman and 11 years as president. Purdie fought with the Essex Kent Scottish Regiment in WWII. He served as Town Councilor for eight (8) years and was Chairman of the Parks and Recreation Committee for four (4) years.

Let's continue to mirror Jack Purdie's commitment to our Community when planning the next phase of this park's Lifecycle.



Thank you to all who participated in the first phase of public engagement, as your participation helped shape the revised plan to meet our Community's needs. Results from the first consultation can be found in the Documents section of this page.

We are now in the second phase of public engagement and look forward to your feedback.

When viewing the plans for Jack Purdie Park, you may also want to consider the plans identified in the Centennial Park Project on Talk the Burg. These two parks are less than 0.8 kilometres from one another. To best accommodate our community's greatest needs, we have taken a strategic approach for the location of amenities to ensure we deliver fiscally responsible plans. All concept drawings can be viewed in the Documents Section of the project page.

  • SURVEY and PUBLIC CONSULTATION have now concluded. Thank you to everyone who took the time to contribute. The survey results are under review and will be found in the DOCUMENTS section of this page when the report is complete. The next steps for this project can be seen in the LIFECYCLE section of this page.

NOTE: The Survey for Jack Purdie Park Playground Structure Replacement is now complete and the information gathered is being used for the Request for Proposal, which is underway for its replacement. Council has approved funding. To see the Jack Purdie Park Playground Survey Results CLICK HERE.

Any additional accessibility needs should be communicated to accessibility@amherstburg.ca.
We look forward to hearing from you!
