Mechanic Street Park construction to begin

Construction of the Mechanic Street Park in Springhill will begin this month and is expected to take approximately three weeks to complete.

 

“It is exciting to be in the construction phase of this project! Our community has waited for this day,” said Maryanne Jackson, district councillor. “To be able to replace the old park with a safe, accessible, all-ages park is a joy.”

Park design includes developing a parking area, a splashpad and playground space. Both the splashpad and playground will have components engineered to be accessible in addition to graded access to the spaces designed for ease of use.

During construction and once complete, the park will remain off-limits to residents until COVID-19 restrictions are lifted by the Province.

Municipal Council approved awarding the contract for the Mechanic Street Park Design and Build Services to ABC Recreation at their meeting March 4, 2020. The contact is valued at $232,000 before tax.

ABC Recreation is a Canadian-owned company that has been a trusted partner for municipalities, landscape architects, campgrounds and childcare centres across Central and Eastern Canada for more than 25 years.
