Munro Park Redevelopment Update – September 14, 2015
Do you have any old photos of Munro / Mount View Park?
As the Munro Park rejuvenation proceeds, we have an opportunity to add some history to the Munro Park sign, as we did for Victory Park. Check your old photo albums to see if you have any photographs of the park that show the amenities that were there in the 50s and 60s. We would love a photo of the skating oval or the old wading pool.
Munro Park Redevelopment Update – September 1, 2015
There has been a lot of activity at the park in the past couple of weeks! Everything started to get underway with the equipment staging and protection fencing being put up on Monday August 17th. The construction/demolish began on the 20th!
Here are a few photos of the progress. Please feel free to have a walk over to Munro Park and see the progress for yourself. Also, if you snap any picture and want to submit them to be added to our webpage or to our social media feeds forward them to firstname.lastname@example.org. We love to see the community through your eyes.
Below is the image of what the park will look like when everything is complete! Very exciting times.
