|First off, it was a spiffy new playground by the Valarosa Parks Association opened at the end of June. This has already proven to provide kids with the opportunity for a safe space to play within walking distance, and also allows people in the area to go from strangers in a neighbourhood, to a community that is connected.|
And now it's the Playground project in WestHeights, opening later this week. This is a value added program that was included in the Capital Budget earlier this year.
As in any year, regular maintenance is required for any Town assets, including playgrounds. A playground inspection on WestHeights Playground identified that work was needed in regards to safety concerns, including replacing wood structures.
Great work has been done on the WestHeights Playground by the Town's Public Works crew, The Playground Guys, and Tanas Concrete Industries. They managed to make this project happen in under 3 days!!
This playground will be ready for children on Friday, July 24th.
Friendly Reminder: The playground is not ready yet. Please remind your children to stay off the equipment until the barricades have been removed.
