The City of Edmonton has come back to the Griesbach Playground Committee and Community League with some disappointing news.
With the amount of rainfall this summer, playground projects have been delayed across the City. With this delay, the City cannot guarantee that the playground will be built fully this season and has recommended that the construction start as one of the first projects in Spring 2017. This is disappointing news, but it is the safest option and allows Major General Griesbach School to use the school grounds without restriction over the fall and winter. Work is being done behind the scenes- completing the underground electrical work and pre-purchasing the playground equipment, which will help speed things up in the spring.
This is unfortunate news for everyone, but we are working with our partners to minimize the delay as much as possible.
