Around the Park
Spring has finally sprung. Brand new green leaves and blossoms are all around the park and the temperatures are a little milder. The promise of longer warmer days are just around the corner. A time to be thinking about travel and camping and delicious meals with good company in the sunshine. Bliss.
During the cooler weather much maintenance has taken place in some of the cabins and in some of the on site caravans. The surrounding grounds have also been attended to. Council has finally approved the plans for our new camp kitchen. We are just waiting on finding the right builder so that we may have it finished in time for all those campers eager to escape the city for a weekend of joy in the country.
This Friday, September 28th, there will be a great many brass and pipe bands playing in the park in an annual outdoor concert from 2pm – 5 pm. Bring the kids and enjoy this spectacular event.
