Kiwanis Park playground closed temporarily for construction work

Service Announcement

The playground at Kiwanis Park will be closed Wednesday, Jan. 25, 2023 to allow for crews to safely conduct construction work that’s anticipated to take at least a day.  

Heavy equipment will be on-site to remove a large concrete pad where the old washroom building was once situated. After it is removed, visitors to the area may face intermittent disruptions in the coming months while crews work to fill and landscape the area. 

Anyone visiting the area this week is advised to slow down and watch for machinery. Note that the sports field will remain open. 

Anyone with questions can contact the City’s Parks department at 250-490-2500.
