Many thanks to everyone who helped make this project a reality: to Allison Nitchke for her perserverance and the Park Redevelopment Committee for their dedication, to all the folks who - donated their time to volunteer at the fundraisers, donated bottles, bought burgers and beers, purchased legacy bricks, and paid taxes, we thank you. Thank you to The City of Edmonton, Anna our CRC at the start of the project and the workers who coped with the heat to get the job done, so we could all cool off. We are very fortunate to have great facilities at the centre of our community.

For those of you heading to the Park to cool off, mind the fences that are in place and heed the rules.
