Borealis Park - Rejuvenation Work
Beginning late summer of 2018, Parks crews have been doing rejuvenation work to the vegetation around Borealis Park. While there will be no closures or interruption to service, residents may notice some changes to the atmosphere of the park and the shrubs and greenery.

Rehabilitation work is intended to open up the space to make it more inviting to families, minimize opportunity to litter, and to plant other varieties of grasses and shrubs.

This project is anticipated to be complete by approximately mid-September, 2018.
