The playground will cost around $80,000 to build. They say the funding is from reserves and won’t impact taxes.

“I’ve been mayor now for seven years, some of the best conversations I’ve ever had are with students at our local schools – parks are at the tip of their wishlist,” said Mayor Ryan Windsor in a press release Wednesday.

They say the playgrounds have been designed for ages 2 – 12 and will have accessible and inclusive features for people of all abilities.

The new playground will be located in the northeast area of the park and will have an access pathway and picnic table along with a bench and landscaping.
