Community Play Area Opening In Pine Grove

The first phase of the Pine Grove outdoor play area will open this weekend. A grand opening is planned for Saturday from 10am-2pm at 72 Charlie Lane. A rain date is planned for the same time on Sunday, should the weather not co-operate. Municipality of Lunenburg councillor Sandra Statton says it will fill a need in the community.

The outdoor play area will feature a ball hockey or ice hockey pad, depending on the season, basketball nets, a swing set and mountain bike hills. A ball hockey tournament will be held Saturday to mark the event, with an entry fee of $2. Statton says phase two is expected to begin next October.
