CORNWALL, Ontario - If you have kids and live near either Menard, Adams or St. Joseph parks in Cornwall, we've got some good news for you.
The city is replacing three aged play structures in the parks with brand new varieties that should all be ready for the pounding of little feet by July.
In fact, the structures are so neat, even the young at heart may enjoy a turn down the slide.
City parks and recreation manager Christine Lefebvre said the structures are budgeted to cost about $50,000 each, which includes site preparation and construction.
The Menard Park structure, arguably the coolest looking of the bunch, will be installed June 24 (weather permitting) and the balance will likely go in sometime next month.
"We want the kids to have fun on them," she said. "The older ones were just so obsolete. They've been there for a long time."
Typically the city replaced two structures a year, but in recent times has only been able to afford one.
Lefebvre said the structures are inspected regularly to ensure they are safe for use.
