Upgrades To Wilmot Park Tennis Facility (January 28,2010)

The Government of Canada and the City of Fredericton recently announced that they will team up to rehabilitate the Wilmot Park tennis facility. Thanks to an investment of more than $68,000 from the Recreational Infrastructure Canada (RInC) fund, this facility will receive critical improvements to its infrastructure.

The announcement was made on January 28th by the Hon.Keith Ashfield, Minister of National Revenue & Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency & Atlantic Gateway; and Fredericton Mayor Brad Woodside.

This project will allow the City of Fredericton to repair and rehabilitate the Wilmot Park tennis facility. Specific upgrades and repairs to the facility include paving; plexi- paving; line painting; landscaping and the installation of posts and nets. The City of Fredericton is also contributing $159,334 toward the project.

“The City of Fredericton is very appreciative of the contribution from the Government of Canada towards the Wilmot Park tennis court rehabilitation,” said Mayor Woodside. “For a community to be healthy, it needs to be active, and this investment in one of our municipal recreation facilities helps in that regard.”
