The Village of Marwayne has secured additional funding for the Walking Trails and Splash Park through the Canada Community Revitalization Fund (CCRF). The Village of Marwayne has received $375,000 in federal funding to go towards these projects as a means of expanding our community’s recreational amenities for residents and visitors alike.
"Our government is making investments that transform community infrastructure into modern gathering places for residents of all ages through the Canada Community Revitalization Fund. Today’s support to establish this new community recreation space in Marwayne will help create a welcoming place where residents and visitors can connect to enjoy the outdoors.”
- The Honourable Daniel Vandal, Minister for PrairiesCan
The Canada Community Revitalization Fund (CCRF) is a two-year, $500 million national infrastructure program to help communities like the Village of Marwayne rebound from the COVID-19 pandemic. The fund assists non-profit organizations, municipalities, community groups, and Indigenous communities across Canada to build and improve community infrastructure projects. PrairiesCan administers the CCRF in Alberta.
"The Village of Marwayne is eager to break ground on the splash park and walking trails this summer. Thanks to the Canada Community Revitalization Fund, we are now able to move ahead with projects that have been on the drawing board for years. We look forward to celebrating this achievement once construction is complete and have the opportunity to relish with our fellow citizens over the beautiful amenities our community stands to benefit from for years to come.”
- Chris Neureuter, Mayor for the Village of Marwayne
The Splash Park will be constructed in Westview Park in the spring/summer of 2022, located in between the soccer fields and the playground. The design will be suitable for all ages and abilities, with multiple pieces of equipment for everyone to enjoy. As for the walking trails, these will extend upon our current trajectory to allow for better pedestrian traffic within our boundaries and ease of access to our various Village amenities.
Our goal is that the construction of the Splash Park and Walking Trails will enhance our residents’ quality of life, draw in visitors and help local businesses during the peak season by encouraging more people to shop in their stores, dine in their restaurants and further enjoy their experience in the small rural Village of Marwayne.
"Trails, parks, and public spaces across Alberta communities bring people together and support countless small businesses. Today’s investment will help Marwayne to recover post-pandemic by creating more jobs and opportunities for residents and visitors to benefit from the local businesses and attractions that are at the heart of this community.”
- The Honourable Randy Boissonnault, Minister of Tourism and Associate Minister of Finance
