PRESS RELEASE: DUNNVILLE, ONTARIO Work nears completion on Dunnville’s Centennial Park, as Dunnville Horticultural Society gears up for its re-dedication ceremony. Extensive improvements to Centennial Park were undertaken this spring and summer, with the main focus being the re-furbishment of the derelict Centennial Fountain. Major repairs to the concrete uprights were done, and the historic panels lining those uprights were completely overhauled and re´Čünished by professional artist and sculptor Christian Corbet. Additional park improvements included the installation of accessible concrete pads with benches, and paved pathways throughout the park, leading over the now accessible bridge to Grandview Lodge and Lions Park. Future improvements are in the works to revitalize the trail and path system at the north end of the park beside Thompson Creek. A re-dedication event is planned to showcase these many improvements to the public, and to thank project partners and community supporters. September 23, 10am-12noon, the public is invited to attend a 1967 themed celebration, complete with free refreshments and free activities for kids.
