The park will be a major venue for events marking the 150th anniversary of the Charlottetown Conference that led to Confederation.

The city plans to spend $100,000.

"We have a couple of gazebos that need the shingles replaced, the roofing. And also the boardwalk has both a combination of the wooden boards and as well as the brick works," said Coun. Melissa Hilton, chair of the parks and recreation committee.

"We're just going to improve it and repair it. And it's all going to be brick, graded properly."

Hilton said these upgrades are a part of the planned budget, and the work will begin soon.
