Niagara Falls, ON, August 30, 2017 – The City of Niagara Falls is excited to announce the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for the F.J. Miller Park Playground. The ceremony will take place on Monday, September 11, 2017 at 4:00 pm at 7018 Valiant Street, Niagara Falls. Residents are encouraged to attend. Light refreshments will be served after the ceremony.
Built in 1995, the playground at F.J. Miller Park was identified as one of the oldest playgrounds in the City’s park system. The playground had poor accessibility due to a sand safety surface and was recommended for a complete replacement.
The new playground includes an accessible play structure with artificial turf safety surface, new swings, seating and shade trees.
This playground opening is part of “Operation Awesome Playgrounds”, an initiative Mayor Jim Diodati announced at his State of the City Address in March. As part of this initiative, the City’s program to refresh play structures is being accelerated, with 10 parks being replaced in 2017. F.J. Miller is the third playground to be opened under this exciting initiative! Residents are encouraged to sign up on the City’s online engagement site letstalk.niagarafalls.ca to learn more.
