Hello Ward 8 Neighbours,
On February 6 we updated you about some big changes are coming to the Greeningdon neighbourhood. A brand new play structure will be returning to Ridgemount Elementary, which hasn’t had a structure since it was removed when the school expanded a few years ago.
The City of Hamilton has announced a Ridgemount Play Structure Replacement engagement session, which is set for March 5 (4pm-7pm) at Dave Andreychuk Mountain Arena.
For more details, please continue reading below…
Passed at the February 3 Public Works Committee, the new playground at Ridgemount Elementary will be funded by the Ward 8 Area Rating Reserve account. Construction is anticipated to begin this coming summer.
There will be no operation or maintenance impact to the City as this new playground will be replacing a previously existing one. The anticipated cost of the playground will be $150, 000.
