Cleanup efforts begin at Lion’s Park

Cleanup of Lion’s Park has begun, and is expected to take about three months.

In June, Lion’s Park was flooded by the Hangingstone River and subsequently closed for public safety. Affected areas include the playground, access to nearby trails and the Lion’s Club parking area.

The cleanup effort includes the off-site removal of approximately 1,000 m3 of sand, silt and other materials, site grading and cleaning of park fixtures. Damaged equipment and infrastructure will be repaired.

Lion’s Park will remain closed during the cleanup process. Use extra caution when traveling nearby.
