• Children, families, Town staff, Councillors, Mayor Lovatt, and Mayor for the Day winner Kaylee Tse braved rainy weather to cut the ribbon and open Stouffville’s newest playgrounds.
  • Thanks to $560,000 in Government of Ontario grant funding, Memorial Park’s newest amenity is being called “the best playground in our area” by some local residents.
  • “The construction of this project began in September of 2022 with the goal of providing a safe and inclusive play space for children of all abilities,” Town CAO Sunny Bains said in his speech.
  • The two designs focus on accessibility and include pathways to and through the playgrounds, ramped elements providing access to elevated structures for those with mobility challenges, and sensory play panels.
  • “The new playgrounds are part of Stouffville’s ongoing commitment to creating a more inclusive and accessible community for children of all abilities,” Mayor Iain Lovatt said.
  • Children and families enjoyed music and playing on the new playground, and ice cream was on the house thanks to Councillor Sue Sherban.
  • “There is nothing we like to see more than families and children in town playing outside and enjoying our facilities,” the Mayor added.
