Springdale Trails Park Improvements

Thank you to all who monetarily donated to the Springdale Trails Park Improvement project! To date donations have been collected in the amount of $81,740. We have placed the order for playground equipment that will be custom built and ready for installation in the spring.

You can still help! Donations will still be accepted as there will be construction costs in the spring, and a future phase two that would include additional equipment.

Donations can be made at this link (choose the option to make a one one-time payment) or in person at the Village Municipal Centre, 7401 Meyer Road. Please note on your check or donation “Springdale Trails Playground”. Springdale Trails Park is located at 9600 Bonner Lane.
