Ashley Vigneux and the children she cares for are happy to have new play equipment at Bramblewood Park in Harrow.

The transformation of two neighbourhood parks in Harrow is well underway.

Both Bramblewood Park on Pearson Drive and Liberato Park off Centre Street West have been transformed from passive green spaces into neighbourhood parks, complete with children’s playground equipment.

Two play structures from the former Harrow Junior Public School, which had been purchased through community fundraising efforts, were moved by the Town this fall in cooperation with the Greater Essex County District School Board. Each park now contains one of the two play units.

“We are very excited about the enhancements to these parks,” says Doug Sweet, Director of Community Services. “The equipment at Harrow Junior Public School was relatively new and in excellent condition, so we approached the school board with a plan to keep the equipment in the community.”

“We want to add amenities and promote neighbourhood parks as places that people can walk to and use as part of a healthy, active lifestyle, “he says.
“This is something that was identified by people at our Master Plan open houses and in our Master Plan survey results.”

Sweet says that new benches and additional amenities and signage will be added to both parks in the spring.
