Memorial Gardens parking lot reconstruction underway

NORTH BAY, ON – July 11, 2016 – Reconstruction of the parking lot at Memorial Gardens is now underway.

To help address the traffic flow and drainage issues of the current lots, the City of North Bay will be connecting the two gravel lots to create one large parking lot in the area between Chippewa Street and Rollie Fischer Field.  This will provide more parking and increase the efficient use of the space.  The project will include clearing and grubbing of existing vegetation, placing of granulars, grading and installation of a catch basin and storm pipe for the zamboni snow dump.

For the duration of construction the public is asked to continue to use the main Memorial Gardens entrance or the entrance closest to the YMCA. 

The project is anticipated to be complete by the end of August 2016.
