City to spend $510,000 on local park projects

Burnaby council has approved $510,000 in funding for capital projects at city parks.

The new George McLean Park will receive $100,000 in development work, including drainage initiatives, a natural play area, park benches and the extension of pathways. Confederation Park will see a replacement of its 1985 spray park. The $180,000 project is scheduled to be completed  for summer 2012.

At Burnaby Village Museum, a total of $230,000 will be spent to build a mini-golf course and an expansion to the ice cream parlour as ways to increase revenues.
