WaterHarvest prototype update

WaterHarvest prototype update

If you haven’t visited Fred Hamilton Park lately or frequently, you might have missed the excavation and construction of the WaterHarvest prototype.  We still have some work to do but the heavy equipment and disruptive part is almost over!  Work continues the week of October 19th.

Thank you to all our neighbours and park users for your patience during this disruption.

Here’s a quick recap in photographs of our progress to-date:
