Residents in Rolling Hills will have another playground for their kids to enjoy this Fall. The Town of Blackfalds Council voted to move a planned playground from Valley Ridge to Rolling Hills at the last Town Council meeting on Sept 11.
“This will ensure our residents can enjoy the playground that was already purchased, with a promise to order and install a playground for Valley Ridge once the site is ready,” said Community Services Director, Sean Barnes.
The Town had purchased, and is in possession of, the playground set but the site that it was designated to be installed at this fall has not been completed to Town standards as anticipated. Upon administrations recommendation, Council decided to approve the recommendation to set up the new playground in Rolling Hills as opposed to storing the equipment until the Valley Ridge site was completed.
Once the Valley Ridge site is completed to Town standards, a new playground of equal value can be ordered and installed on the site. That timeline is projected to be 2019 or 2020.
