Councillor Blais and Rebecca Dufton, President of the Cumberland Community Association, announced today that Hillside Estates Park is now open to the public.
“Residents in Cumberland Estates will be pleased with this park,” says Blais. “We maintained a natural out-door setting coupled with the right mix of activities to evoke the play and imagination of our children.”
Hillside Estates Park, located on Pierrette Drive in Cumberland Estates, was developed with a budget of $70,000. The public was consulted by way of two public meetings and it was designed with accessibility in mind for children with special mobility needs.
