LIONS PARKETTE IS GETTING A REDESIGN
The Schomberg Main Street Revitalization Strategy was Endorsed by Council on May 13, 2019.
Action item 28 reads:
Ensure Lion’s Park improvements take into consideration Destination Development Association’s best practices for creating a gathering space/plaza.
Incorporate river into design and include an activation area.
On September 28, the Scarecrow Festival was a perfect example of the parkette becoming a gathering space for the community.
And throughout December Lion's Park was Merry and bright with a Festive Selfie Station.
