Get Involved: Share your vision for the Mulock Property

Mulock Property during the fall

About the Mulock Property

The Town of Newmarket's vision for this property is to create an iconic community park/outdoor green space. The site has a remarkable history and potential to become a focal point where community life, recreation, culture, heritage and conservation collide in innovative and engaging ways.

But, we want to hear from our residents. What would make the Mulock Property extraordinary for you?


Community Engagement

As part of the Town’s community engagement process and one of Council’s Strategic Priorities, Extraordinary Places and Spaces, we are currently collecting feedback from the community.

The community survey is now closed. Thank you to everyone who took the time to share their feedback and vision for the future of the Mulock Property!

In the visioning process, we're exploring five key themes and uses:

  • Rooted in history and forward looking: How can we integrate multiple layers of history while bringing new uses and activities to the site?
  • A destination: What would make the Mulock Property a significant place in Newmarket? (consider public art, culture, etc.)
  • Inclusive and accessible: How can we create an inclusive and accessible site for all residents and visitors?
  • Natural features: What are the opportunities to maintain and enhance the natural features of the landscape?
  • Connections: How can the site be integrated within the neighbouring areas (including Jim Bond Park next door? Where should parking be located?
