Improvements coming to Lakeshore Public School park

Existing swing set at Lakeshore Public School

City staff  is planning improvements to the Lakeshore Public School playground in August 2016. Improvements include the construction of:

  • new swing equipment
  • new engineered wood fibre protective surfacing
  • new site furnishings.

The work will take 3 to 4 weeks to complete, depending on weather. To ensure the safety of residents, the playground will be closed during construction and residents will need to use one of the other playgrounds in the area:

  • Central Park – 2299 New St.
  • Port Nelson Park – 3000 Lakeshore Rd.
  • Lions Park – 471 Pearl St.

A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made.

As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington.

The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful.
