Notice: Coldbrook Playground Maintenance Underway

The Municipality of the County of Kings recently inspected the playgrounds that are the responsibility of the Coldbrook Community Association (CCA). These playgrounds include Tammie Park, Brandon’s Place, and Bess View Park. The inspection discovered various safety issues and quickly closed specific equipment to protect everyone from the dangers. The CCA is working closely with the Municipality to ensure the parks are restored to a level that provides a safe place for children to play. Some repairs are taking place now, the rest will continue in the spring.

During this time, we ask that everyone respects the caution tape and snow fencing that is being used to mark the closed equipment.

Thanks for your patience as we work through the repairs.
