Splashpark gets help from Buy-Low

Buy-Low Foods presents $40,000 cheque for splash park project in Clearwater

(L-r) Heather Adamson accepts a $40

(L-r) Early Years community development coordinator Heather Adamson accepts a $40,000 cheque from Buy-Low assistant manager Glenn Hyokki, home office rep. Trevor Digeso and store manager Sandy Toma on Tuesday for a splash park planned for Clearwater.

Half the money is coming now while the remainder will be after the project is finished. The money from Buy-Low was committed some time ago and is already included in the budget, Adamson said, which means more fundraising events will be needed.

Ground preparation for the site, which is located at Weyerhaeuser Park behind the grocery store, has already begun. Workers are to begin installing the splash park this week, with the target date for completion being July 1.
