Carleton Place Receives Funding from Ontario150 Community Capital Fund
The Town of Carleton Place Recreation and Culture Department is pleased to announce their successful grant application for the Ontario150 Community Capital Fund.
Carleton Place’s successful application resulted in funding support of $75 000. This funding will allow for repairs and improvements to Riverside Park including: repairs and additions to the Splash Pad, a paved pathway from the Splash Pad to the washroom facilities, and repairs and upgrades to the washroom facilities to ensure they are fully accessible for all patrons.
“Riverside Park is a hub for families, particularly during the summer months, and we want to ensure it is welcoming and accessible for all,” said Joanne Henderson, Manager of Recreation and Culture. “We are thrilled to receive this funding, which will go a long way to ensuring Riverside Park is an inclusive asset for community members of all ages and abilities. These renovations would not have been possible without this grant support.”
Renovations will begin in March to ensure they are completed by July 1st for Carleton Place’s Canada Day Celebrations. This year’s celebrations will also honour Canada’s 150th Anniversary with added entertainment and attractions.
The Ontario150 Community Capital Program provides one-time funding in 2016/17 to support the repair, renovation or retrofit of existing community facilities – the public places and spaces where Ontarians come together to celebrate, create, play, explore, learn and support one another.
