The revitalization of Shelly Park in Parksville is back on.
The job had to be halted due to COVID-19, but on July 18 Parksville AM Rotarians and other residents got back to work.
“Prior to the work stoppage, pathways had been completed and cement pads poured for the placement of two concrete benches,” read a post from the Parksville AM Rotarians. “Two picnic tables, one wheelchair accessible, have since been ordered and arrangements made for installation by the city.”
Shelly Park was added into the city’s public park inventory back in 2017 after a presentation from the Pioneer Crescent Neighbourhood Residents Association and the Bard to Broadway Theatre Society, which manages a building on the property — now called the Shelly Park Centre — on behalf of the city.
More updates will be provided as work is completed at the park.
