The Town of Fort Frances Make a Big Splash Spray Park advisory committee is excited to share the details of the park project. Council has approved the committee’s recommendation for the spray park to be located at the Legion Park on Lillie Avenue. Committee chair, Becky Andrusco, says “the committee has been working hard on a draft plan which will include the spray park, new washrooms, accessible access paths, parking, traffic controls, and other amenities.

The plan is being developed with the support of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 29 and input from residents in the area adjacent to the park. The Town committee is made up of volunteers, business owners, town staff and community organizations. The committee’s vision for the park is a location that is central within the town and can be accessed by residents and all members of surrounding communities. The park will be a place for our youth, families, friends, and visitors to come together to enjoy the outdoors, connect with each other, and engage in fun outdoor activities. The project is scheduled to break ground in early 2023 opening in late summer.

The Make a Big Splash committee has been selected as a semi-finalist in the Tbaytel for Good Community Campaign and Starting October 6th at 7:30 a.m. voting will open for eligible projects to receive $10,000.00. The committee is asking everyone to please go online and vote for this project at http://www.tbaytelforgood.net/poll/tfg-community-fund-2022/

 

Vote as often as you can before voting closes on October 18th at 3:30 p.m. The top three projects that will receive funding will be announced on October 26, 2022. This will be the communities first opportunity to get on board and show their support for this project and “Make a Big Splash”.

Although fundraising is about to formally begin, donations towards the overall cost of the park and Legion Park rehabilitation have already started coming in. Details on how and where to donate will be available on the “Make a Big Splash FF” Facebook page as well as through local media and direct correspondence to area business and agencies shortly.
