Fernie's Annex Neighbourhood is soon to welcome a new playground, as confirmed by the City of Fernie officials. Construction is scheduled to commence next week, with a targeted opening in mid-July.
The forthcoming playground will be nature-based, designed to provide accessible play opportunities for all, along with the addition of an outdoor amphitheatre to enhance the overall experience.
City staff have announced that construction will begin on Monday, June 5. As a result, certain portions of the nearby trail may experience intermittent closures. Visitors are kindly advised to comply with any posted signage and instructions during this period.
The financing for this project, amounting to $248,000, is derived from the Resort Municipality Initiative as well as private donations. This collaborative effort demonstrates the commitment of both the municipality and the community towards enhancing recreational facilities within the area.
