The Village of Granisle received a $30,000 grant to enhance the Granisle Memorial Park.

With that funding from Northern Development Initiative Trust, the village wants to increase potential for revenue generating activities.

The gazebo has an “expansive view of Babine Lake” and “will become a prime location for weddings, family gathers, reunions, music in the park, Canada Day, Granisle Days and other community events,” said a recent NDIT press release.

The grant will also fund construction of a wheelchair accessible washroom and shower and a covered ramp to make the gazebo wheelchair accessible.
