Construction in Nose Creek Park set to begin
May 17, 2016/ For Immediate Release
AIRDRIE, ALBERTA – Beginning the week of May 30, visitors to Nose Creek Park will see construction fencing and signage going up in preparation for enhancements to key elements of the park.
Crews will begin with the demolition of the current washrooms/pavilion area; making way for a new building with multi-stall washrooms, a built-in concession and a covered picnic area.
“Although the layout for the pavilion area will remain similar to what we have now, taking it down was necessary as it was structurally insufficient for the renovations needed,” says Scott Fediow, Parks Development Technician.
Temporary washroom facilities will be available for visitors to the park until the new washroom facilities are opened, which is scheduled for August 2016.
Once the pavilion area is complete, crews will move to phase two of the project which will see the current amphitheatre taken down and a new, covered amphitheatre built on the pond but further to the east. Phase two will also include a longer boardwalk with a lower dock to allow easier wintertime access to the ice surface for skaters and convenient fishing access in the summers. Residents will also enjoy a larger seating area for the amphitheatre, which will be made with a mix of natural materials built into the landscaping.
All enhancements to the park are expected to be complete in November 2016.
Pathway and area closures will be marked with fencing, barriers and signage. Residents are asked to obey all construction signage to keep everyone safe during this exciting construction project.
