In order to mark this year’s 40th Anniversary of the Island View Drive and Area Ratepayers’ Association (IVDAARA), the Board decided to allocate some funds to beautify a local park so that members and residents would see a tangible commemorative. Therefore, the decision was to further beautify Centennial Park, continuing the enhancements (lilac trees, raised beds and birdhouses) we did in the spring.
A huge stone flowerbed was built around the flagpole and it will eventually be planted with both spring bulbs and flowering plants. Local residents also donated much time and resources to help out the project.
In addition, the company Ledgerock donated a 700 lb rock to IVDAARA for Centennial Park to be used as a natural bench, a very nice gesture on their part. Thank you Ledgerock!
And thank you to all the volunteers who worked so hard to make this happen, and who will also be working on the plantings this fall and next spring.
So, when you’re out for a drive please make sure to take a look at these park additions, a welcome improvement to our community.
