CENTENARY FUND CONTRIBUTES TO DOMREMY PARK AND TRAIL
People in Domremy will soon be enjoying a new park thanks to a contribution from the province's Centenary Fund.
The province contributed $7,500 toward the cost of the $15,000 project. The park development will include a hill for winter sliding, park benches, fire pits, playground equipment, and horseshoe pits.
"This new park is testimony to the creative ways that Saskatchewan people are partnering with government to build on the excellent quality of life in Saskatchewan," Government Relations Minister Ron Osika said. "The people in Domremy and area will be able to enjoy their park for many years to come."
"I am very pleased that Domremy is getting this park with the assistance of the Centenary Fund," Mayor Janetta Breaton said. "It will be a boost for our community - a place for family and friends to gather."
The Centenary Fund was set up to leave a legacy of Saskatchewan's Centennial for future generations. Leading up to the centennial celebrations in 2005, the government is funding projects that are of provincial or regional benefit and develop municipal infrastructure. Under the Centenary Fund, Saskatchewan communities will receive $120 million over four years, toward their centennial projects.
