Project Benefits:

  • Walkway will be a complete loop around Memorial Park and fully accessible. The interlocking brick will be replaced with concrete and stonedust.
  • LED lighting will be energy efficient and enhance security for users enjoying the walkway.

Fundraising Campaign

The project is being undertaken with support through the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program. The Municipality of North Perth received a grant of $109,000.00 from the CIP 150 program.

The CIP 150 funding is for 1/3 of the total project cost. The Municipality will be responsible for $118,000.00. An additional $100,000.00 is to be raised by the Memorial Park Rehabilitation Committee through this fundraising campaign.
