New Event Stage for the Shubie River Park

Mon Aug 18, 5:44 PM

With every renovation - first comes the dismantling of the existing project.  The old Ball Building in the Park has been an eyesore for quite a number of years.  About two years ago we were touring the park with Dan Chassie from Halifax C&D, they did the marvelous job for us on the drainage in the park - Pam MacInnis the councillor at the time mentioned how bad that buidling looked.  Dan immediately said " Would it help if I provided new siding and roofing for it from my Scotia Metals company".  Well that spark started this whole process that is finally underway.

Tear down team - Richard Ashton and his team - Andre, Brent, T.J., Cameron and Johathan worked VERY hard Friday, Sunday and some on Monday to tear the top off that old building.  It was a big job and we needed this kind of volunteer help.  What an amazing job they did.  See the photos of the old buidling.

Over the next two weeks keep your eyes on the project - and if you have some buidling skills and would like to help come on down for the re-build.  Derek Taylor is leading that charge. 

When complete we will have the Washrooms, Snackbar and Ball Storage building with a new metal roof and siding - we will also have an Event Stage on the back of the buidling facing out to the Ball Field - this will be ideal for special events - it will be a 20' x 13' stage - ideal for Canada Day, Canoe to the Sea, community events and concerts.  Provincial Heritage and Culture has contributed to this project and we thank them for that.

Please be careful with your children down around that area and have them stay back from the construction going on.

Thanks again to Richard and his team.
