A new playground area at Hawk Glen Park has been recently completed and the City of Courtenay officially opened the playground at a ribbon cutting event on Friday, July 26.
The playground has new features including a friendship swing, belt hammock, chill spinner and panel maze as well as slides and climbing apparatus.
Courtenay Mayor Bob Wells said the playground is a welcome addition to the area.
“Hawk Glen Park is a popular neighbourhood park with lots of kids in the surrounding neighbourhood, so we know this playground will be well-used,” he said. “We’re grateful for the work of the contractor and City staff in making this great play area for everyone to enjoy.”
