A new neighbourhood playground on Muzzy Drive is officially open. The playground, located between Damour Terrace and Kernaghan Crescent in Crescent Acres, will provide much needed recreation space for the growing community.
“This neighbourhood has experienced some of the most residential growth in the City over the last decade,” said Councillor Dennis Ogrodnick, City Councillor for Ward 5. “I know it’s a welcomed addition to the area and families will enjoy having a recreation option within walking distance.”
The new playground includes an Oodle Swing (pictured below on the left) which was paid for from a $10,000 contribution from the Crescent Acres Community Club.
Several added features are also in the works for the playground this summer including:
o Picnic tables,
o Garbage receptacles,
o A bike rack,
o Fencing along Muzzy Drive; and
o A table top speed bump to ease traffic speeds along Muzzy Drive
The total cost of the project is $114,000.
“With the spray park in Kinsmen Park, the incredible Jumpstart Playground at the Alfred Jenkin’s Field House and the Skate Park at Parkland Hall it’s been a great year for outdoor recreation in Prince Albert,” said Mayor Greg Dionne. “We can now add the Muzzy Drive playground to that list.”
