[ARCHIVED] Playground expansion planned for Tom Kelley Memorial Park

Playground Park with Fence

Friday, June 25, 2021

There will be new ways for children to enjoy Tom Kelley Memorial Park in Electoral Area A (Rural Golden).

At its June 17, 2021 Regular Meeting, the CSRD Board approved spending $35,000 from the Electoral Area A Community Works Fund to install an additional playground climbing structure, as well as adding benches and fencing.

The park, located at 1703 Oberg Johnson Road in the Blaeberry, currently has a wooden play structure and swing set designed for children from two to five-years-old.

In discussion with the Electoral Area A Parks Advisory Committee, community focus groups and Electoral Area A Director Karen Cathcart, consensus was reached to purchase a new climbing structure which targets children aged five to 12.

The total budget for the park upgrade is $95,000. The remainder of the funds will be coming from the CSRD's park's budget, along with a contribution of $20,000 from grant funding.

Park improvements are planned for fall of 2021 subject to contractor availability.

This is the climber at John Evdokimoff Community Park in White Lake. A similar unit will be installed at Tom Kelley Memorial Park later this year. View the June 25 2021 Playground Expansion Planned for Tom Kelley Memorial Park (PDF).
