Video: Dennis Moore Centennial Park has its official name

Mayor Roy Ludwig and the city council unveiled the new name of a renewed park in Estevan Friday morning. The park located at the corner of Smith Street and Souris Avenue North is now officially called Dennis Moore Centennial Park.

As Ludwig put it, city councilor Dennis Moore was the “driving force behind the improvements in this park.”

While all city parks are still closed to the public due to Covid-19, and there are still a few more final touches to be made in Dennis Moore Centennial Park, the main structures are already in place and the park is looking great.

“It’s a whole new life for the Centennial Park. It really is. People are going to know where the Centennial Park is and they are going to really appreciate what’s happened. It was a really great thing to do, and now that it’s done we just have to wait for this (pandemic) to get over,” said Moore.

Dennis Moore Centennial Park was reconstructed in association with Tim Hortons. It will be the third splash park in Estevan and it promises to bring a lot of joy and happy moments to the community once the restrictions are lifted and the park is opened.

When finished the park will have an accessible play structure, splash pad, walking path, picnic area, seasonal washrooms, multipurpose grass space, benches and electrical and water hookups available for special events. Dogs will be allowed only on a leash.

The park is built in traditional Canadian red and white colours and is decorated with maple-leaf flags. The water tower, which is a part of a splash structure, is located under the Estevan’s landmark.

The park project was approved in June 2019. The construction on the splash pad began at the end of July last year.

The next week’s edition of the Mercury will have more on the story.
