Thank you for your interest in, and support of, our Big Plans for the Albert Rec Unit park rejuvenation!
The City of Saskatoon has received Canada 150 funds to replace old play structures in seven parks across the City, with Albert Rec Unit being one of them. The City’s portion of this little park project – replacing some of the playground equipment – is due to be tendered early next year with construction tentatively slated for 2017.
Our plans are nearly done and we need funds in place this year so we can rejuvenate the remainder of the park at the same time – causing less disruption to the park and its users by constructing on the same schedule.
Now is the time to donate! We still need $120,000 by December 1 2016 to meet our goal!
Let’s make our little park a BIG success!
