Victoria Park, Kingston Receives #TDCommonGround Grant

#TDCommonGround, an initiative celebrating Canada's 150th birthday, is investing in the future of green spaces by revitalizing over 150 community spaces across the country including Victoria Park in Kingston

JRS has been working with the City of Kingston on a revitalization strategy for the park that includes: diversifying the tree canopy; installing water play features and a rain garden that incorporate infiltration and water conservation education; the addition of play elements; and, a new engaging community gathering area.  The park improvements will be celebrated with a re-opening event summer 2017.
