Playground area added

A new accessible playground area will be added to the Dale Meadows Park and Playing Field Complex.

A new accessible playground area will be added to the Dale Meadows Park and Playing Field Complex.

Parks and recreation director Dale MacDonald said the new playground is a joint project between Summerland Parks and Recreation, Astral Media, Summerland Kinsmen and Summerland Rotary.

The playground, which will be 75 per cent handicapped accessible, will be fenced and netted. The work is to be completed next spring.

Dale Meadows Sports Complex is a 10-hectare space with five softball fields, three soccer fields, basketball courts and a 1,200 metre jogging track.

MacDonald said the playground equipment will be an important addition since many of those using the field for sports events have children or younger brothers and sisters who need a place to play.

“We want it to be a useful family area,” MacDonald said.

The parks department will do all site preparation work including providing the sand. Playground equipment will be installed by the parks department and volunteers from the Summerland Kinsmen Club.

“It’s the biggest project I’ve been involved with in Summerland,” he said.
