Osoyoos seeking grant to make improvements to Pioneer Walkway and a number of parks

Transforming public spaces

The deadline to get the application submitted is June 25.

The application includes work to install a scent garden at Pioneer Walkway, provide free wifi in a number of parks including Pioneer Walkway, West Bench Dog Park, Gyro Park, Lions Park and to upgrade the two water fountains at Pioneer Walkway.

Quotes for the projects and items are included in the application, totalling $55,000 for the work. If the grant is successful, it would cover 100 per cent of the project.

The Accessibility and Age Friendly committee has the scent garden on its list of projects and if grant funding is not successful, this project will still be included for the future.

Applicants will be notified in September to find out if they have been successful and all funding and work needs to be completed by June 30, 2022.
