Ferland Spray Park

Recipient: District of Vanderhoof
Amount: 37500
Date: 2010-01-26
Areas: Vanderhoof
Sectors: Community Infrastructure
Strategy: Community Infrastructure
Description: District of Vanderhoof is seeking funding to assist with the purchase and installation of a new spray park at Ferland Park. This will involve bringing in high quality materials and interactive water features to replace the current spray park which is 20 years old, outdated and unattractive, and becoming costly to maintain, an inefficient water management system, and a safety hazard for the children using it. During warmer months (May through October), the spray park is heavily used by families, schools children, preschoolers, and visitors to the community. Improvement of this amenity will make the Community a better place to live, work, and play as well as help District of Vanderhoof to recruit and retain professionals and businesses.
