Construction of the new Britannia Beach Play Park will begin on September 28. The project is expected to take three weeks from start to completion.
The Britannia Beach Play Park was initially built in 2008, with funding from the SLRD. After more than a decade of use, and following an inspection in 2020, it was determined that the park was due for an upgrade.
The Britannia Beach community has experienced a great deal of change and growth in recent years, and this new play park will be a welcome addition, and an important community amenity,” said Tony Rainbow, SLRD Electoral Area D Director.
“When it’s completed, the play park will be almost double the size of the previous park with more opportunities appealing to a broader age range,” he said.
“I am pleased to see this project move forward this fall, with young residents and visitors being able to enjoy the play park before the snow flies, and for many, many years to come.”
The Park will reopen after the upgrade is complete. The SLRD Board of Directors approved the project in the fall of 2020. The budget for this project is $207,607, and SLRD is now investigating funding opportunities for better landscaping on the site as well.
