Mariners Park playground open in Prince Rupert

Prince Rupert families and kids got their first chance to play in the newly installed Mariners Park playground over the weekend.

The re-deveoped pirate-themed playground was led by the Prince Rupert Lion’s Club, who spearheaded the park’s original playground installation in 1994, and a number of community sponsors.

Prince Rupert Mayor Lee Brain says the new park installation was truly a collaborative effort.

The Port of Prince Rupert contributed nearly $96,000 to the project, Shell Canada’s Prince Rupert LNG project contributed $75,000 to the project, Ridley Terminals contributed $25,000, $25,000 was provided by Macro Properties, DP World kicked in $4,500, Prince Rupert Grain gave $2,500, and the Lions Club has contributed approximately $30,000 through
fundraising.

The project did suffer some delays due to vandalism, but the mayor says the community stepped up once again to cover the extra costs.

The new playground features a a rubber fall-safe surface, enhancing both safety and accessibility for users.
