Forest Drive Gyro Park Grand Reopening
September 20, 2012- Get ready to celebrate the grand re-opening of Forest Drive Gyro Park. Residents in the Forest Drive neighbourhood (hospital neighbourhood) have been working hard since May 2011 under the City of Nanaimo Volunteers in Parks (VIP) Program to improve their neighbourhood park.
On Sunday, September 23rd bring the little ones and come check out the new playground equipment, bike trail and ball court. There will be fun activities and a free hot dog BBQ between 11:30am – 1:30pm.
The Parks, Recreation and Culture Commission awarded a neighbourhood grant to the project at the end of September 2011. The improvements began in the spring of 2012 and are intended to assist residents in creating a great community green space for all ages to enjoy and for neighbours to share, play, visit and meet each other. Recently the Commission has approved the renaming of the park to be Forest Drive Gyro Park in recognition of the Nanaimo Gyro Clubs contribution to the park project.
