For all you Barrie residents, you know that Barrie's South End experienced a significant boom in a very short period of time. Businesses have continued to grow, and new homes are popping up all the time. Public infrastructure has been lagging in the South End, like libraries and community centres. Our city understands the increasing need for this type of family-oriented activity space, and behold a new park has been constructed!
Near the intersection of Huronia and Lockhart you will find a few golf courses among other industrial parks, and now it's a family- and kid-friendly area that will now service the surrounding residences with almost 1000 people.
Watch our mayor, Jeff Lehman, discuss the new park and its benefits to this South End neighbourhood and Barrie overall.
This is one of four new parks to be constructed this year, so keep your eyes and ears open for new developments :)
