November, 2008

Thelma Griffiths Community Park in South Wellington received a major facelift over the spring- summer with the addition of new playground equipment, fresh landscaping, signage, fencing and a picnic table.

Community volunteers and RDN parks staff working together on everything from design to construction, have transformed a rough field with old remnant play structures into a vibrant playground and community space.

In addition to the community volunteers and RDN the following local businesses and organizations contributed time or materials to the redevelopment of Thelma Griffiths Community Park;

  • Granby Bobcat Services
  • Gregson Holdings/Copcan Contracting
  • Evans Turf Farm
  • Cinnabar Valley Farms Ltd
  • Van Isle Aggregates
  • Triple T Excavating
  • S.R. Jaswal & Family
  • H&T Power Technologies
  • Mid Island Fence
  • The South Wellington Volunteer Fire Department

For more information on this project, contact Wendy Marshall, RDN Manager of Park Services or Elaine McCulloch, RDN Parks Planner (emcculloch@rdn.bc.ca)

April 2008

After community consultation, plans to refurbish the park and to install new play equipment are going forward! Site preparation and construction is scheduled to begin in March 2008 and should be completed by April 2008. More information can be found here>>.
