The company behind a natural gas pipeline project is pumping $50,000 toward a new splash park in Terrace.

Coastal GasLink has contributed the cash to the Rotary Clubs of Terrace and Skeena Valley for the project, which will cost $250,000 in total.

Kelly Gingles is the chair of the Rotary splash park committee, and says the donation is a major boost for the project.

The planned splash park would be located at George Little Park for use by northwest residents, and is hoped to be completed by next spring.

The splash park will be incorporated with the current playground at the park, and extend to the existing concrete pathway that runs through the park.

Terrace mayor, Carol Leclerc says the splash park will be an inexpensive way to contribute to a healthy community.

Jaime Harding is with Coastal GasLink, and says despite the at times vocal opposition to LNG pipelines and projects, there’s a silent majority that backs them.

The Coastal GasLink project would carry natural gas from northeast BC to the proposed LNG Canada liquefied natural gas terminal in Kitimat.

Thank you for that but it would be more economical towards housing an shelters for youth who need help, since they are the future oh an the elderly an disabled who are struggling to pay rent let alone buy food an pay natural gas an or hydro. Or what about day cares. ? We do have a swimming pool an recreation center that needs the support of the community. But then that’s my opinion just saying
