During the Regular Meeting of Council held on April 24, Council gave its approval for the procurement and implementation of rubber surfacing for the phase three playground area. Funding of $120,000 for the rubber flooring will come from the Growing Communities Fund.
Earlier in 2022, Council approved $250,000 for the phase three playground upgrades. Working within this budget, play equipment options were selected that were inclusive and diverse. The contract for the playground upgrades was awarded to Swing Time Distributors Ltd. Ground construction will begin in early spring with the rubber surfacing and playground installation completed by late summer or early fall.
The Jubilee Park Playground first opened in 2016, and the District of North Saanich has continued to make enhancements and add new features making it a popular destination for many kids and families and for adults who use it as a starting point for runs or a gathering place for workouts.
