The Northern Ontario Heritage Fund $490,000 to help complete construction of Central Park.

That includes a new playground.

Kenora-Rainy River MPP Greg Rickford says the NOHFC helped with funding to rebuild the community club and the extra money is going towards the rest of the project.

“It’s almost a half a million dollars, of what I like to call the finishing touches,” Rickford said in making the announcement on Thursday at Central Park.

“Lightning…canvas…a rubberized surface for in and around the play structure to extend the season and make it a safer environment.”

Rickford is also the chair of the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation and adds they like to see the finished product for these projects.

“When this is finished, folks are really going to appreciate what the Central Community Club has done on a volunteer basis and what the City of Kenora has envisioned.  It’s going to be amazing and we wanted to be there right from the start.”

Kenora mayor Andrew Poirier says all told the federal and provincial governments have put in over $1.3 million  in funding toward the construction of Central Community Club and Central Park.
