I am pleased to announce that through my work on the budget committee, West Lodge Park has been secured for wading pool rehabilitation in the 2008 Parks capital budget. Much of the improvements will be made to the water chamber, but I have also requested that a number of landscaping features also be incorporated in this project. After meeting with staff and speaking with some of you in the community, a seating wall, new walkways and softscaping have been added to the design.
Please be advised that I will be hosting a public meeting in late October to share the project design with you and get your feedback on the design work done to date. I would like to invite all of you living around this green space to share your experiences of accessing West Lodge Park, and to identify additional opportunities for improvement in this great space.
I will post more details on my website as they become available. Stay tuned!
