View Royal Park's playground equipment will soon undergo a $150,000 expansion as part of the Town of View Royal's park improvement plans, Citified has learned.
Situated between Helmcken Road to the east, the Trans Canada Highway to the north and Pheasant Lane to the west and south, the expansive green space will see its existing playground foundation up-cycled in order to retain the equipment's core structure while adding on bridges, climbing components and slides for children aged 5+.
Once work is completed the playground will also feature a separate play area for children aged 2-to-5.

Playground components are scheduled to arrive in the coming days with construction scheduled for completion by late spring.
In addition to View Royal Park's playground upgrades, View Royal councillors have also budgeted $32,000 for improvements to playground equipment at Newstead Park. The small green space is situated along Heddle Avenue between Prince Robert Drive and View Royal Avenue.
Home to approximately 10,500 residents, View Royal is one of Victoria's fastest growing municipalities with a 5.6% growth rate between 2011 and 2016 according to the 2016 census.
