Come out and celebrate the grand reopening of Victoria Park on Sunday, July 30 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“I’m so glad that enhancements to Victoria Park are finished including a new water play area, new tennis and basketball courts, and a BBQ/picnic zone. This beautiful park in the heart of downtown has something for everyone and I’m glad families will be able to enjoy this revitalized outdoor space!” said Mayor Bryan Paterson.

“We are thrilled to support the revitalization of Victoria Park in Kingston,” said Tara Lynn Hughes, SVP Greater Ontario Region, TD Bank Group. “In Canada’s 150th year, TD is focused on creating and revitalizing green spaces across the country to bring people together and find what we are calling ‘TD Common Ground’. The completed park will provide a natural space for the community to come together to meet, talk and play. We know the redevelopment of Victoria Park will have a tremendously positive impact on children and families in Kingston for years to come.”

Kingston is one of seven municipalities to benefit from the TD Common Ground Project, in celebration of Canada’s 150th year of Confederation, which will support a diverse range of projects across Canada to help grown and enhance community green spaces.

The celebration will include:

• Ribbon cutting and plaque unveiling at 11 a.m. at Victoria Park.
