In 2019 a group of citizens from Mulhurst Bay came together to create the Mulhurst Bay Revitalization Plan which set out several initiatives to meet the ever-changing needs and aspirations of the Mulhurst Bay community. This plan was presented to Council on August 13, 2019.
In the 2020 Recreation Budget, Council approved funding for the Mulhurst Bay playground, parking lot and drainage. Initial construction of the playground was delayed due to COVID-19 and our wet spring but on September 28, 2020 construction began. Installation of the playground was competed by Park N Play with the excavation of the site, installation of boarder and sand was completed by County Public Works, Agricultural Service and Parks Staff. The playground portion of the project was completed on October 9, 2020.
The parking lot and draining is still under review. The final design will be completed in November with site preparation to follow.
The County of Wetaskiwin would like to thank the Mulhurst Bay Revitalization Committee members Kate Brown, Ken Adair, Catherine Peirce, Randal Kay, and Richard Conrad for their assistance and support with this project.
