Children need open and accessible play space. Completed in 2015, the new Allan Gardens Playground required an investment of section 37 funding to complete the scope and work of the project. The playground improvements, including new play structures and a safe rubber playground surface, were the result of a lengthy community consultation process.
In under-served areas, open and public play and park space is even more essential, as children need play and activity in order to be healthy. I was proud to lead the community compensation for this, and now Allan Gardens has a brand new playground for children and families from across the community and the city to enjoy.
