On Wednesday, July 20th, MP Jennifer O’Connell announced that the Township will receive $747,750.00 in funding through the Canada Community Revitalization Fund to support improvements being made to Elgin Park.

The grant will be used to fund a series of improvements to the park including:

  • Replacement of existing playground with a new inclusive and accessible playground
  • Winterization of public washrooms for year-round use
  • Installation of additional lighting and power infrastructure along pathways for improved safety and functionality
  • Installation of a pathway of inclusion to embrace and recognize diversity in our community
  • Installation of a new shade pavilion

The Township and the Uxbridge Lions Club are contributing additional funding to support improvements to the park.

“This is a really great news story for the Township and our marquee park”, says Mayor Dave Barton. “Thank-you MP O’Connell for your support and sharing this exciting announcement with us. This funding means that the Optimists can extend their holiday light display. It provides 4 season public washrooms for our downtown visitors.  It means the Lions Club can build a top-notch accessible playground. It improves safety by adding lighting at the Elgin Park gate. This grant helps us recognize the diversity of our community. In short, it will help our community bounce back from COVID and offer great experiences that support our economic and social health. Thank-you - we are very grateful to receive this grant, it means a lot for our community.”

Construction on the park is expected to begin in mid-September.
