Work has begun on some improvements to Hackett Park this summer with much more coming. The tiered seating for the outdoor stage is in place and grass will be planted soon.
As Trail Avenue construction required the removal of soil from the roadbed to be sifted by archaeologists and it was temporarily placed in Hackett Park for this work. To save on the cost of removing it to another location, the soil was repurposed, the addition of some concrete blocks, to form seating. There are 5 tiered-seating levels approximately 7 feet wide, with grass on each level. Each level is approximately 18”-20 high and does not require railings. The seating is directly in front of the future location of an accessible outdoor performance stage. The stage project was jointly funded through tax revenue and the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program – Community Culture and Recreation Program and construction may begin in 2022.
