Five Communities to Benefit from Improved Recreational Infrastructure
Five communities in the province will receive $1.6 million in funding for the improvement and renovation of recreation and cultural facilities.
On Thursday, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Derrick Bragg and MP Scott Simms made the announcement.
In the Town of Grand Falls-Windsor, the Goodyear Avenue Ball Field users will benefit from re-paving the existing parking areas, improving the walking track surface, and installing new backstops and scoreboards at two baseball fields.
Other projects being supported include a new playground for Blanch Brook Park in Stephenville; installation of a new steel dome for the outdoor rink in King’s Point; a new chiller system for the stadium in Twillingate; and renovations to the Recreation and Culture Centre in Change Islands.
The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador is contributing over $508,000 toward these projects while the Government of Canada is investing more than $509,000. The municipalities are providing the remainder of the funding.
