Brand new park for Huntington community


The project to bring a new playground to the Huntington Hills area began in the fall of 2007, and now, two years later, the community is excited about their newly installed park!  A small group of community members worked together to plan and fundraise money to create a park for children of all ages to enjoy.  The park contains swings, slides, climbing walls, a merry go round and much more!  The town began installing the park in mid July, with the first section opening on July 31st.  Final stages of the project were completed by mid September.  The group would not have been able to achieve their goal without the help and donations from various businesses, organizations and community members.  The group is thankful to the following donors; Alberta Lotteries – Community Initiatives Program, The Town of Drumheller, Park N Play, EnCana Corporation, Royal Tyrrell Museum Cooperating Society/Drumheller Fund, Royal Purple #109, Rotary Club of Drumheller, Drumheller Kinsmen Club, Conoco-Phillips, Q91, Drumheller and Alberta Elks Club, Tarpon Energy Services Ltd, Quadrock Trucking and Excavating Ltd, and many Huntington Community Members.   Thank you to the residents of the Huntington area for their ongoing support of the project and to the provincial support of MLA Jack Hayden  A special thanks to the president of the group, Angela Gill, who kept the project on track and didn’t give up. The Huntington Community group invites Drumheller residents to come and enjoy the park located on Huntington Park.
