New Hagel Park Playground Official Opening
The new playground at Hagel Park was officially opened today by Electoral Area D Director Brenda Leigh and Chief Administrative Officer Dave Leitch.  The new playground includes a stand-alone structure for children aged 18 months to 5 years. It also includes several connected play structures for 5 to 12 year olds: a double slide, climbing nets, a track ride, a tight rope, a wiggle ladder, a basket swing and a number of other play components. The old Hagel Park playground equipment was dismantled in early August. The structures were approaching the end of their lifespan and did not meet current Canadian playground safety standards. The Hagel Park Association built the original playground more than 20 years ago. It was loved by its many users and served the community well. While it was hard to see the old playground go, the new playground is proving to be equally popular as you can tell from the attached photos!  See photos
