Dignitaries were on hand Saturday, May 12 to cut the ribbon and officially open Parksville’s Craig Heritage Park for the season.

Ken Welwood president of the Craig Heritage Park Society asked Parksville Mayor Chris Burger to dedicate the property which officially became a park this month. The historic property has undergone some major improvements including better access for people with disabilities.

Burger said it is the volunteers who make the park successful and once the tourist season gets underway it will be bustling with visitors.

 

“It is especially important for tourists to know a bit about the history of the area,” he told the crowd on hand for the opening.
