City Receives $500,000 Grant to Revitalize Victoria Park
TD Bank Group is giving the city half a million dollars to renovate Victoria Park.
The donation is part of the banks Canada 150 Celebration Campaign.
The money will be used to plant new trees, to replace the former wading pool with a splash pad, and to build a water conservation garden.
"This generous grant from TD will support needed upgrades and enhancements to our well-used and loved Victoria Park," says Mayor Bryan Paterson.
"The planned upgrades will create a more inviting space to welcome the community while also showcasing responsible environmental practices."
Renovations to the park are already underway and work should be completed by this summer.
