As many of you may have noticed, Grange Park is under construction – mud, protective fences, and tractors are everywhere. But what you may not know is that a huge revitalization project is underway, and the results will be worth the wait.

The revitalization project will ensure the preservation of the park’s history while creating an inviting environment for the community. Renovations should finish by summer 2017. Here are some of the biggest changes we can expect:

  • Larger playground for kids
  • New play area for dogs
  • More grass and flowers
  • New seating
  • Fewer fences
  • New lighting
  • New washrooms
  • More Trees

Curious to see the park ready? We are too, but until then we can some pictures of the project:
