The Township of Puslinch unveiled the exciting addition of a new playground and shade structure at Boreham Park in Arkell. This project was made possible through the generous support of an Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) Capital Grant of $150,000 whose substantial contribution enabled the Township to enhance the recreational opportunities for the community.
“Our thanks go out to the Ontario Trillium Foundation, as well as Township of Puslinch Council and staff,” said Ted Arnott, MPP for Wellington—Halton. “This new playground in Arkell will not only give children a wonder-filled place to play, but from an early age they will also feel the vitality of our caring community.”
OTF played a pivotal role in bringing this project to fruition by providing funding that significantly contributed to the construction and installation of the playground and shade structure. This partnership between the Township of Puslinch and OTF exemplifies a commitment to creating vibrant and inclusive outdoor spaces for residents of all ages to enjoy.
“The unveiling of the new playground and shade structure at Boreham Park is exciting for our community. We are deeply grateful to the Ontario Trillium Foundation for their support in making this project a reality,” said James Seeley, Mayor of the Township of Puslinch. “This addition to our park will undoubtedly enhance the quality of life for residents and create lasting memories for generations to come.”
This project aligns with the Township of Puslinch’s commitment to promoting a healthy and active lifestyle, fostering community engagement, and creating inclusive recreational opportunities for all residents.
