Davies Street Park growing slowly

Work on the long-anticipated Davies Street Park in Upper Fairview remains stalled, but is expected to resume in the fall.

Work on the long-anticipated Davies Street Park in Upper Fairview remains stalled, but is expected to resume in the fall.

“It’s kind of in limbo right now. We just don’t have the staff to thrown at it to finish it up,” says acting city parks director Karen MacDonald.

Lots remains to be done, including the addition of street lighting, washrooms, a garden, and a gazebo.

Some work is expected to be contracted out, but MacDonald says they’re trying to do as much as they can in house.

“The building of the washrooms we’re going to do ourselves. The community garden we’ll do ourselves and the gazebo will probably be bought built,” she says.

The city sold seven adjacent lots to pay for the park, which netted a combined total of $475,000. The province has also chipped in.
