PT.BRUCE PARK IMPROVEMENTS

 

(At Malahide Council Thursday, a Pt. Bruce Master Plan was presented along with a proposal to pursue a Trillium grant for its implementation. Information on the Plan is from Chris Cox, Malahide Community Services Co-ordinator:)

“This plan is a Master Landscape Improvement Plan for the Pier/Wannacott Park/Playground. This plan right now is in its infancy as I have applied for a couple of grants to get a professional plan done up along with grant money to work on a phase one. The township is working on this as well as the Ratepayers Association of Port Bruce.

The reason we are looking at this right now is that we have made great strides in the last year with receiving funding for the North part of the Township and since we are still working through those projects we wanted to start the same process for the South part of the Township.”

According to the report, specific improvements include more trees for Wonnacott Park, the repainting of the pavillion in a neutral colour, more playground equipment and stone seatwalls to replace the concrete barriers by the pier.

We did this video to have some fun after the many months of construction. It was a way of uniting our residents, family, staff, construction staff etc. together.

 

We picked this song (Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen) because it was popular and lots of fun. We started in January and the video was completed by the beginning of March. Many of the residents had never heard this song before but still were eager to participate in the video. It was a little harder to convince the staff of their singing and acting talents.”
