The City is completing a Master Plan for Germain Park that will identify priorities for park revitalization, including updated and new amenities. With the help of the park users and Sarnia residents, the Master Plan will outline a vision for Germain Park and the Strangway Community Centre, ensuring that these assets continue to meet the needs of residents well into the future.

Current Park Features

As one of the largest parks in Sarnia, the 60-acre Germain Park serves as a central park that has been a fundamental piece of the community for over 70 years. The park consists of a number of notable active and passive leisure amenities including but not limited to:

  • Sports fields
  • Multi-use courts
  • Off-leash dog park
  • Gardens
  • Public art
  • Pathways
  • A community center

Some park amenities are approaching the end of their lifespan and other recreational needs are emerging. Recent initiatives, such as Sarnia’s City-wide Parks and Recreation Master Plan (2019), support the need for a comprehensive planning strategy for the park. The study will consider how to best integrate upcoming capital projects into the park.
