New playground equipment is coming to the Ashcroft pool park.

New playground equipment coming soon to pool park

The new equipment will be suitable for children aged six and up, meaning more opportunities for older children to have fun.

The South Cariboo Elizabeth Fry Society is excited to announce that the new playground equipment for the Ashcroft Pool Park will be installed on the weekend of September 10 and 11.

This will be a very welcome addition to the park, as the current playground equipment is dated, and suitable for children up to about six years of age. The new equipment will accommodate children from toddlers to teens, with a wide variety of play opportunities.

With very generous donations from local service and non-profit groups and businesses, together with a couple of large grants, the playground equipment went from dream to reality in just over a year of fundraising! Thank you to the small but dedicated committee who worked to bring it all together.

The playground equipment will be set up under the direction of a supervisor from Swingtime, and will utilize local volunteers. If you wish to volunteer your time on either of the days, please call Andrea Walker at (250) 453-9402 for more information.

There will be an official ribbon cutting held on Saturday, September 17 at 1 p.m. at the pool park.
