As of August 16 Riverside Park has been seeded in preparation for final steps.

According to Mayor Thiessen the project has been a success so far with re-leveling the area and being sure that it will be successfully utilized for outdoor activities.

Outdoor gym equipment is to arrive shortly,” said Thiessen. “We also cleared away some under brush alongside the river in an effort to clean up the park.”

The under brush that has been cut and cleared alongside the river allows better visual awareness of swimmers and activity happening at the base of a high current area on the river.

Also, Mayor and council are looking for community members to “champion” the pool project going forward.

“We would like to see the pool come to referendum,” said Thiessen. “It will be an area for the community that will attract and retaining quality individuals into the community.”

Mayor Thiessen aspires to see an “aquatic centre” become apart of the community in order to see residents stay here rather than having to travel to places such as Prince George to enjoy such luxuries.
