Foothills Kinettes Wa­ter Tower Park grand open­ing Sept. 22

Prairie Post (West Edition) - - High River / Claresholm -

On Satur­day, Septem­ber 22, the Town of High River and Foothills Kinettes will cel­e­brate the grand open­ing of the new Foothills Kinettes Wa­ter Tower Park, lo­cated at the corner of 8 Av­enue and 3 Street S.E. The new park was de­signed based on the thoughts and ideas High River res­i­dents pro­vided dur­ing var­i­ous en­gage­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties.

The new park fea­tures a brand new, ac­ces­si­ble play struc­ture and a 71-ft. zip-line – one of the first in South­ern Al­berta.

Even­tu­ally, benches, ta­bles and proper light­ing will also adorn the lus­cious open green space of the park to al­low res­i­dents the op­tion of hav­ing a fam­ily picnic or friendly foot­ball game with friends and neigh­bours.

“It’s been quite a jour­ney to get here,” says Tan­nas Webb, parks su­per­vi­sor with the Town. “But, thanks to the Foothills Kinettes it’s been made pos­si­ble. We now have a space that pro­vides not only a place for kids to play, but a won­der­ful space for res­i­dents to en­joy na­ture in the mid­dle of town.”

The new park was named in hon­our of the Foothills Kinettes, who con­ducted en­gage­ment with the com­mu­nity and raised funds to sup­port the park devel­op­ment.

“In the true spirit of what the Foothills Kinettes stand for – ‘serv­ing the com­mu­nity’s great­est need’ – we have re­vi­tal­ized the former Wa­ter Tower site in a way that en­riches the vi­brancy of High River and gives back to the com­mu­nity,” says Jenny Jones with the Kinettes. “The com­mu­nity has a new place to use, en­joy and most im­por­tantly, (re)con­nect with one an­other.”

The Town of High River and Foothills Kinettes in­vite the pub­lic and me­dia to the park site on Satur­day, Septem­ber 22 from 1 to 4 p.m. to cel­e­brate the grand open­ing of the park, and also test out the new play equip­ment and zip-line. Food and bev­er­ages will be avail­able thanks to the fol­low­ing event spon­sors: Mr. Mike’s Steak­house Ca­sual, Tim Horton’s, Cana­dian Tire Jump­start, Foothills Signs, Sobeys and Nan­ton Spring Wa­ter.
