The so­ci­ety, South Glen­garry Town­ship and the Mart­in­town Good­timers As­so­ci­a­tion are in the process of mak­ing the park a re­al­ity. The pro­ject will in­clude the con­struc­tion of a deck with a gazebo, a pic­nic area, a me­mo­rial gar­den and walk­ways ac­ces­si­ble to ev­ery­one. The com­mu­nity-ori­ented park will en­hance the use of the com­mu­nity cen­tre and will be an ideal spot for a pic­nic, for friends to gather, or just to en­joy a quiet mo­ment in na­ture.

Since 1965, the so­ci­ety has been in­volved with im­prove­ments in the vil­lage, in­clud­ing land­scap­ing, plant­ing, and main­tain­ing the grounds of the lo­cal com­mu­nity cen­tre. Mem­bers also plant and main­tain the flow­ers in the vil­lage and con­trib­ute to Christ­mas light­ing and the Santa Claus Pa­rade.
