TRENTON PARK REDEVELOPMENT WORK REACHES EARLY MILESTONE
Trenton, NS – The redevelopment of Trenton Park has reached a major milestone, in awarding the design work phase to Glenn Group Landscape Architects and Park Planners.
The successful contract notification took place in February 14, after a public tendering process, through the Town of Trenton in the amount of $216,140.00 plus applicable taxes.
“We’re thrilled to see this incredible project for the community officially underway with the beginning of formal design plans. We know that people are really excited to see the work start in the park, and the design phase is a big milestone for this redevelopment project,” said Mayor Shannon MacInnis. “We will be working closely with our project manager and council as this redevelopment project comes to fruition and look forward to what this will add and bring to our community.”
The project has seen support from all levels of government, with $2.2 million from the federal government, $1.2 million from the province of Nova Scotia, and $254,518 from the Town of Trenton, Town of New Glasgow, Town of Pictou, the County of Pictou, the Town of Stellarton and community.
“We are thrilled to have this company selected and start the formal plans for the project,” said John Charlton, Project Manager overseeing the redevelopment project. “Park users may start to see activity on-site as early as this spring, and we’re working towards final completion of the project in summer of 2021.”
Once complete this universally accessible, high-quality parkland will serve as a signature destination within our community offering residents a wealth of outdoor recreation activities and opportunities. Redevelopment plans include many new additions to the park including a large and exciting playground, seating, signage, shade shelters, refurbished pool, picnic areas, splash pad, fenced dog park, washrooms, trail remediation, and additional, upgraded parking facilities. Once restored and modernized, Trenton Park will provide a safer, accessible, and more welcoming environment to ensure the widest use possible and participation by people of all ages.
The fundraising and redevelopment project was initiated by the Hemlock Group, a volunteer group of engaged citizens looking to create an outdoor recreation space for all of Pictou County and beyond.

Community Grants Policy & Application Process

Coming into effect for 2019 fiscal year. Submission deadline: February 28th.
Every year the Town receives requests for support from many community groups and causes. Responding to such requests on an ad hoc or “as received” basis may result in unequitable treatment of requests that are received late in the fiscal year, or may not allow Council to best prioritize such requests for maximum impact in the community.
