Ground broken on new CDC playground

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Child Development Centre in Fort St. John will be getting a new playground for kids to enjoy.

Ground was officially broken today on the project, which is expected to be completed sometime in October.

Andy Ackerman, president of the Child Development Centre, says this will give kids a chance to have fun.

“The design is being intended to give the kids a lot of fun, and some challenges, and to make them think and use their imagination.”

There are currently 1200 kids at the CDC right now. There is also 800 people on a waiting list wanting to use the CDC’s services.

“We really focused on what we could do for the kids, because this is really what it is all about.”

Urban Systems are responsible for the design of the playground. Habitat will be providing the playground equipment. Midnight Sun are the contractors doing the main preparation work.
