While the ren­o­vated El­iz­a­beth Swan Park was orig­i­nally sched­uled to have a grand re­open­ing in Au­gust, the event has been of­fi­cially post­poned to next year.

At Clarenville’s town coun­cil meet­ing on Tues­day, Aug. 28., Recre­ation and Com­mu­nity Devel­op­ment com­mit­tee chair­man Coun. Rod Ni­choll said they de­cided the re­open­ing should be tied in with of­fi­cial Canada Day cel­e­bra­tions next year on July 1, 2019.

“As we have dis­cussed, hav­ing the event ear­lier may have been a lit­tle over-the-top in terms of try­ing to co­or­di­nate both things,” said Ni­choll at the coun­cil meet­ing. “One date the com­mit­tee does feel is the way to go.”

The com­mit­tee rec­om­mended to con­tact of­fi­cials as soon as pos­si­ble with the new plans for the open­ing date.
