The swings and spinner are in place in Lockwood. Installation will take another day or so – waiting for mulch and cement to cure. Can’t wait!
Thanks to everyone who supported the Village in last year’s Aviva Insurance voting, we received a $10K grant for accessible playground equipment. It is being installed today in Lockwood Park. No tax dollars were used for any of the additions or changes in Lockwood. A Trillium grant provided funding for the stage, an Aviva grant covered the new playground equipment and the Lockwood Foundation donated $25K and matched funds ($75K) raised by the Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee. Congratulations and thank you to everyone who has contributed … the park has become a very popular place to spend time.
Come by the park later this afternoon and take a swing or a turn on the new equipment.
Well done Bundy, Scott, Troy and everyone else involved in supporting the Ontario Amateur Softball Association offering its pre-season Springboard Program Lockwood Field, Westport today. The clinics offered fun skills and drills to players in two age groups: 8 to 12 and 13 to 16. The younger group had approx 28 players this morning and there looked to be around 60 involved this afternoon. Players were doing drills to learn and practice the basic fundamentals of the game of fastball: Catching and Fielding, Throwing, Hitting. There is also a pitching session taught by Softball Ontario’s CANpitch instructors. Yes, right here in your Village. What a great event!
