COURTENAY, B.C. – Kids and families will have a new amenity to enjoy at Courtenay’s Puntledge Park.

Work is underway on a new playground structure at the popular local spot.

According to a notice from the City of Courtenay, completion of the new structure is scheduled for the end of June.

The park will include a slide pole, space walk, rock wall climbers, an overhead ladder, a wave slide and other features. Two foundations for the new structure have been installed, with work expected to be finished either this week or next week.
