New Play Structures Fill Gap in Elizabethtown-Kitley

Two new play structures were built in the Township of Elizabethtown-Kitley last year, thanks to a total $83,000 investment from the Canada Community-Building Fund across two projects. 

The two structures, one in Heather Heights and the other on the Kitley Soccer field, have slightly different purposes. The Heather Heights structure was built on an empty recreational field that hasn’t seen much use in recent years. The new structure has given the neighbourhood a simple and walkable recreation option, with plenty of seating for adults. 

The Kitley Soccer Field structure fills a different community need. Youth soccer programs run four nights a week, and families need a way to keep the siblings of the soccer players entertained during the games. The nearby library also hosts events at the structure, and it sees heavy use every day. 

These new structures have been a huge success, making it easy for families of Elizabethtown-Kitley to find fun outdoor recreation.
