Armstrong Park enhancement project

North Bay, ON – September 9, 2016 – There are upgrades coming to Armstrong Park that will only add to its natural beauty.

The City of North Bay has begun preparations to accommodate a new gazebo at the southeast corner of the park adjacent to the North Bay Canoe Club, in addition to new walkways and landscaping.     

Part of the City’s preparation of the site includes the removal of aged poplar trees that pose a risk to public safety and park assets due to their age and root structure.  Once construction has been completed, the City will landscape the area surrounding the structure to include new trees and shrubs.

Work is slated to begin on the structure within the next two weeks. For the duration of construction, the playground structure and beach area will remain open to residents and visitors.  The City asks that everyone obey any construction safety barriers.

The project is anticipated to be complete by late fall 2016.

The City of North Bay is a city of 54,000 people situated between the shores of Lake Nipissing and Trout Lake. For information on City services and programs, North Bay residents, businesses and visitors can visit
