Munro Park is one of four fi­nal­ists in the Kraft Pro­ject Play com­pe­ti­tion which will award a $250,000 grand prize.

In a re­lease, of­fi­cials with Kraft Pro­ject Play said they re­ceived 705 nom­i­na­tions from across Canada, and from those, Munro Park in North Syd­ney, Port­lock Park in Salt Spring, B.C., White Oaks Park in Lon­don, Ont., and Swilers Rugby Club in St. John's, N.L., have been se­lected as the fi­nal­ists.

In ad­di­tion to the grand prize of $250,000 for a recre­ation fa­cil­ity up­grade, the three run­ners-up will each re­ceive $25,000.

Vot­ing to se­lect the win­ner will take place online at Kraft­Pro­ject­Play.com start­ing on Aug. 17 at 1 p. m. AT and clos­ing Aug. 19 at 12: 59 a. m. AT.

Vot­ing is un­lim­ited, so Cana­di­ans can vote for their favourite fi­nal­ist as of­ten as they want.

The grand prize win­ner will be an­nounced Aug. 21 on TSN’s SportsCentre.

In its sub­mis­sion, of­fi­cials with Munro Park noted that “no club/fa­cil­ity could use $250,000 more ef­fi­ciently than ours.”

They noted the money would be used to pur­chase new reg­u­la­tion-size soc­cer nets as well as a small cin­derblock struc­ture to store them. Old, splin­tered bleach­ers and benches would be re­placed, the field would be pro­fes­sion­ally re­paired, and a va­ri­ety of equip­ment would be pur­chased in­clud­ing a score­board, an agility lad­der, cones, pin­nies and more.

The bleach­ers at Munro Park in North Syd­ney would be re­placed with new ones if the park is suc­cess­ful in its bid to win Kraft Pro­ject Play, which comes with a $250,000 grand prize. Munro Park has been named one of four fi­nal­ists.
