Bridgewater Riverfront Revitalized

You need to come see  the redesigned improvements to King Street Court Park. It is now more visible, accessible and inviting!

A Community Celebration on October 2nd, 2010 had participants partying despite the drizzly morning.  (Volunteerism and economic revitalization of the riverfront were the reasons for the entertainment).

For once the street was blocked off not for construction, but for the enjoyment of the public.  More and more festivals and even weddings, will be happening in the park in the future.

There were bands playing, FREE cake, buskers doing professional facepainting and making balloon animals while on stilts.  My favourite part was riding through the farmers market in golf carts and stopping at the Petite River Winery’s hard cider tasting.   Mmmm

Service clubs ran BBQ stands, a ladies kick boxing club performed, and bubbles donated by a local business floated on the breeze.  Prizes ranged from bicycles to coveted gift certificates.

This event was put on by a committee from the Riverfront Renaissance action group of the Bridgewater Development Association.  Many plans and promotional efforts have been carried out in the background.

If you’d like to assist Bridgewater‘s momentum in getting the Lahave River back to being a major draw for enjoyment and business, there is plenty to do.

Check out the following site www.smartbridgewater.ca for details on progress to date and future phases of the economic development plans.  There are also thank yous to the various funders listed there.
