$148,000 OTF Grant Helps Build a Splash Pad in Stafford Park
Laurentian Valley – On Saturday, the Township of Laurentian Valley welcomed members of the public to the Grand Opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the completion of its newly constructed splash pad.  Local MPP John Yakabuski and OTF Grant Review Team member Ray Westgarth were on hand to congratulate the Township and hear more about how the $148,000 Capital grant is making a difference for children of all ages and abilities.
“This Splash Pad will offer a wonderful opportunity for children and families to “Cool Off” as they enjoy wet and wonderful times together.  Congratulations to all.”
John Yakabuski, MPP for Renfrew-Nipissing-Pembroke
 “When outdoor public recreational facilities are properly designed, located, and maintained, they improve the quality of life of a community. A splash pad will offer an exciting, new play and social opportunity in a safe and enticing way with more accessibility for children of all ages and abilities.” – Steve Bennett, Mayor for the Township of Laurentian Valley
