Baie D’Urfe invests almost $300K in playground and curling rink
Baie D’Urfe – Canada and Quebec will each invest almost $90,000 for two recreational infrastructure projects in Baie-D’Urfé. This financial support comes from the New Building Canada Fund, Provincial-Territorial Infrastructure Component—Small Communities Fund. The City of Baie-D’Urfé will also invest almost $90,000 to bring the total government and municipal investment to more than $268,000.
The first project involves upgrading a multi-purpose playground at the Red Barn Park for year-round use to accommodate public skating and hockey in the winter, and basketball and ball hockey during the summer. The second project involves upgrading the local curling club’s refrigeration system.
The governments of Canada and Quebec recognize the importance of having good recreational infrastructure that encourages people to adopt healthy lifestyles and helps make communities vibrant inclusive places to live. Thanks to joint government funding, the City of Baie-D’Urfé is renovating some of its sports infrastructure, which will enhance residents’ quality of life while contributing to the growth of sporting activities and enduring community prosperity.
“Recreational infrastructure helps build strong healthy communities and create middle-class job opportunities. Our government is proud to be making investments, like these in Baie-D’Urfé, that offer residents new opportunities to engage in a variety of sports year-round.” Francis Scarpaleggia, MP for Lac-Saint-Louis, on behalf of the Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities
“By supporting construction and renewal projects such as these, we are demonstrating our desire to make safe accessible facilities available to local residents and help municipalities ensure the durability and quality of their infrastructure. These projects in Baie-D’Urfé will also help Montréal residents engage in regular sports and physical activities, promoting the adoption of active lifestyles.” Geoffrey Kelley, Minister Responsible for Native Affairs and MNA for Jacques-Cartier, on behalf of Sébastien Proulx, Minister of Education, Recreation and Sports, Minister Responsible for the Capitale-Nationale Region
