Each year the City of Saskatoon Community Services Department/Recreation & Community Development Division accepts grant proposals from Community Associations across the city for Park Enhancements.
This past Spring the ACA formed a committee of Chad Malinowski, Hayley McCallum & Angela Strand, with the help of Craig McCallum and JT Sprinklers, and submitted our first ever Park Enhancement grant proposal. The committee saw a need for further development at CP Seeley Park, located at Niderost Street and Underwood Avenue, to enhance the park to be more than the existing “tot lot” and welcome older children.
We are VERY proud today to announce that we were awarded the full grant! 👍
The plan is to build a new structure, which has been approved by the city, catered to older children, east of the existing play area.
We look forward to the Avalon community supporting us in this endeavour and our fundraising efforts to meet the rest of the requirements needed to enhance this playground for children in years to come!😀
