New playground equipment at Rosemere's Bourbonniere Park

Earlier today, at a ceremony attended by representatives of Bourbonnière Park’s young clientele, Mayor Madeleine Leduc inaugurated the park’s new, safer and more modern facilities. Carried out within the framework of a five-year plan for the replacement of park equipment,  this project called for an investment of $65,000. 

 Ever conscious of the need to provide safer play areas, the Town of Rosemère removed the old playground units, which no longer met the CSA’s (Canadian Standards Association) safety standards for children’s playgrounds and equipment. In fact, given the age of the units, it had become impossible to replace obsolete or missing equipment.   

 The new installations were developed with an eye to providing challenges for all age groups, from modules for children 18 months to 5 years of age, to a game for 5 to 12-year olds, offering challenges at every stage of their development, as well as a supernova providing multi-age fun for kids from 2 to 5 years old.  

 "Our plan calls for safe and modern installations that meet the demographic changes of the different clienteles served by our parks and green spaces. In the case of Bourbonnière Park, our young families will be delighted to discover the dynamic natue of the playground equipment,” concluded Mrs. Leduc.
