Amherstburg Playground On TVO Kids

A TVO Kids show about building playgrounds in unique neighbourhoods is coming to Amherstburg this summer.

“Giver'” will film from August 22nd to 24th while volunteers build an accessible playground near the Miracle Diamond at the Libro Community Centre.

$75,000 was donated by DeAngelis Construction and Norlon Builders for the playground, but a lack of town funding put the project on hold until now. Amherstburg council will be asked tomorrow to approve the donation of in-kind services, and accoridng to staff, that will be the only resources needed from the town. The Miracle League will be fundraising to cover any additional costs.

Several other towns have already been featured on the show, including Hamilton, a first nation reserve on Georgina Island, and the town of Port Hope.
