Area E receives funding for playground gear

CSRD agrees to purchase playground equipment to enhance three beach access parks in Swansea Point.

The Columbia Shuswap Regional District has agreed to purchase playground equipment to enhance three beach access parks in Swansea Point.

The lake access park areas are at the end of Cambridge, Oxford and Westminster roads. According to a CSRD memo, the purchase of playground equipment is intended to “enhance the public use and experience at these parks.”

In addition, the board also approved funding for the completion of phases two and three of the North Fork Wild Trail Development Plan. The completion of these will connect the upper and lower trail systems, “creating a trail loop for users to enjoy.”

The board approved using $205,000 from the Electoral Area E Community Works Fund for these expenditures, as well as for the construction of a new park in Malakwa.
