New Glasgow pledges $30,000 in support of park project


NEW GLASGOW — The Town of New Glasgow is the first municipal unit — outside of Trenton — to make a financial commitment to the Trenton Park Revitalization Project.

The Town announced a capital commitment of $33,000 last week and a pledge to provide their support to the project.

Mayor Nancy Dicks said, “New Glasgow views the Trenton Park as a valued asset to our region and the revitalization is an exciting project to advance for the benefit of all residents in Pictou County and beyond.”

She said, “The Town applauds the dedicated volunteers involved with the Hemlock Group who will be working with the Town of Trenton to implement this transformational project, which will make Trenton Park into a signature destination for year-round activities. Trenton Park is a uniquely positioned urban park with a great trail system and outdoor pool today.”

The recently announced revitalization project has undergone careful planning to ensure the core assets are modernized while adding many new amenities that are age-friendly while providing universal accessibility.

“This project will be the first regional population health project to be considered by all municipalities as we continue to work together to improve the opportunities available to our citizens for health and recreational activities,” Dicks lauded.

“The population health approach was brought to the mayors and warden of Pictou County through the Aberdeen Health Foundation as we work to ensure all socio and economic demographics are able to access the same opportunities.”
