Sparrow Meadows Park grand opening set for September 18

The grand opening for Sparrow Meadows Park at 321 Julia Drive in Welland
is set for Monday, September 18 at 10 a.m. Experiencing a few delays
over the summer due to poor weather conditions, contractors worked to
get the park ready for the remainder of the season and into the fall.
Throughout the last 24-plus months, city staff have engaged with the
public to design a park that meets the needs and desires of the
community, including public engagement sessions to select the overall
features of the park and input on the types and styles of playground
equipment installed. Sparrow Meadows Park is the newest park to open in the City of Welland,
with two more new parks planned in the Dain City area as part of the
Empire Communities development in the next few years.
