Blackfalds town council has awarded the contract for the Valley Ridge Playground.
At their regular meeting on Tuesday, council approved the Recreation, Culture and Parks Board recommendation to give Canadian Recreation Solutions the contract for their construction theme proposal.
The proposal was chosen from among 40 drawings and five finalists.
Coun. Marina Appel, who sits on the rec board, explained why they chose the Canadian Recreation Solutions theme.
“We realize that the theme wasn’t the strongest or super forward as a construction theme, but for the size of the structure and the layout of it, it seemed the most appropriate,” she said.
A total of $125,000 was set aside for the project in the 2018 Master Plan approved by council. A total of $3,000 will go towards picnic tables, garbage cans and other park amenities. The proposal itself is $121,970.
