A little more than a year after it was removed from the Beaverton Harbour, play equipment is expected to be installed at the park in Gamebridge next week, weather permitting.
“They had planned to (install) it this week but the site is all wet,” says Nick Colucci, Director of Public Works for the Township of Brock.
Now, so long as the rain holds off and the ground has an opportunity to dry, he says it will be going in next week.
Last June, the playground at the Beaverton Harbour underwent a major overhaul thanks, in large part, to the Beaverton Lions Club. The Township also contributed to the project.
At that time, it was decided the equipment that had been in Beaverton would be moved to the municipal park in Gamebridge, where Regional Road 51 meets Regional Road 50.
Due to the difference in size between the two parks, Colucci says even with most of the equipment from Beaverton there will be land left over for additional equipment in the future, should the Township choose to expand the playground.
Colucci also says residents can expect the installation of a playground surface material similar to what they have in Beaverton.
