West Van's John Lawson playground open for the fall
Kids will have to wait until next summer to play at John Lawson Park's new water splash pad.
The waterfront playground in Ambleside, however, is now open and features a whimsically updated pirate ship and modern equipment.
The space provides "naturally inspired education opportunities," combining natural elements with playground equipment.
“I am pleased to see that our investment has enhanced John Lawson Park and that thousands of families will come here and enjoy the park as my own family did many years ago. These improvements add to the beauty and utility of this wonderful park,” said John Weston, MP for West Vancouver-Sunshine Coast-Sea to Sky Country, adding the playground in now safer than it was before.
The District of West Vancouver's budget for the playground was $800,000, including community contributions of $169,000 and $244,200 from the federal government.
