Friends of Phin Park
In addition to the yearly clean up, we endeavour to enhance and maintain the welcoming and clean environment in the park. We hold several community events to encourage year round use. These include skating parties, Santa's visit, Easter Egg Hunt, Victoria Day Fireworks, Movie nights, Fairy Festival, Bard in the Park, "Street" Party and Pumpkin Parade. One of the neighbours sets up an ice rink each year as well. We are looking at many more improvements that may include community herb garden, historic plaques, volleyball net, brick oven, "energy" sculptures (wind, solar, human), adventure playground, sundial, shipping container activity centre, Fire pit, Tree trunk sculptures...... In the last 10 years we have added gardens, a pergola, notice board, solar light, tree trunk seating, naturalized areas and over 35 trees. The improvements have helped create more community use and less vandalism.
