Columbus Park redevelopment scheduled to begin July 5
Construction on the redevelopment of Columbus Park is scheduled to begin on Monday, July 5, and a fence may go up around the site prior to that date.
This work, which is part of the City Centre Area Redevelopment Plan, will see the park transform into a venue for gathering and public events in all seasons.
To accommodate the redevelopment of Columbus Park, the site will be closed during construction. Additionally, the sidewalk on the east side of Main Street between McLeod Avenue and First Avenue, will be closed for the duration of the project (pedestrian traffic will be accommodated).
Angle parking on the east side of Main Street from McLeod Avenue to First Avenue will also be used by the contractor as a storage/laydown area for materials and equipment for the duration of the project.
The existing clock tower at Columbus Park will be carefully removed and provided to the Spruce Grove and District Agricultural Society for future display.
As well, the existing dedication bricks at the park will be salvaged and re-used in the redevelopment process.
Updates regarding construction and related impacts will be provided throughout the project.
