The City of Sainte ‑ Thérèse announced the end of the development of the play modules at Guy ‑ Blanchard Park. Children can now enjoy the brand new pirate ship themed facilities.
In June 2020, an arson attack caused damage of more than $ 150,000 and deprived the neighborhood children of their playground. Following a process that included a consultation with students from Saint-Pierre school, a public call for tenders and the completion of the work, the park is now accessible and includes a large play area, modules and new swings. A parent-child seat as well as a disabled person’s seat will also be added to the swings in the coming weeks.
“Last year’s event was very unfortunate and it is a pity that the children are the ones who were the victims of this act of vandalism. However, we are very happy to have completed this project and we are convinced that the families of the neighborhood will have a lot of fun discovering this new space! “, said the mayoress of Sainte-Thérèse, Mrs. Sylvie Surprenant
” The consultation that we carried out with the students was a first for the City, and it was a more than conclusive experience! As it was the children who made the final choice of the modules, we already know that they will be greatly appreciated. The reopening of the park was eagerly awaited, so I invite the residents of the neighborhood to come there without delay! », added municipal councillor for the Blanchard district, Mr. Armando Melo.
The new play modules are ready to welcome Teresian children!
