The Harbourwood Park improvement project has been completed. Members of Comox council, representatives of the Comox Valley Lions Club and Town staff celebrated the completion of the park improvements on July 4. Joining members of council and the Comox Valley Lions Club were residents and their children who reside in the immediate area.
“Members of the Comox Valley Lions Club are very pleased to be in this partnership with the Town of Comox, to provide service to our community,” said past president Bob Scales. “This partnership allows the club to do more with the funds we raise and allowed us to contribute to the much needed improved equipment in Harbourwood Park.”
“Continuing to improve the Town’s many recreational opportunities is a strategic priority of council and this improvement project continues to exemplify council’s ongoing commitment in providing quality play opportunities for its residents,” said Mayor Paul Ives. “Once again, the generous contribution from the Comox Valley Lions Club, allowed council to move forward with this playground renewal project.”
This playground renewal project, identified in the Town’s five-year capital improvement plan, identified a cost of $120,000. The Comox Valley Lions Club contributed $50,000 with monies going towards the purchase of playground features. Park benches and new signage will be installed in the near future.
Harbourwood Park is surrounded by Aitken Street, Redwood Street, and Chestnut avenue.
