Work continues at revamped Kinsmen Park
New train, carousel to open mid-summer
City crews are working hard to get the new and improved Kinsmen Park ready for this summer.
The $9 million project will feature a restored carousel, water park and Ferris wheel that can hold 64 people at once.
"We're at the stage where we're putting the final pieces of the puzzle together," said Cary Humphrey, Director of Recreation and Sports with the City of Saskatoon. "We're doing considerable landscaping, doing paving stone in the front entrance plaza, we have work to pave our parking lot."
Humphrey said the new park will still contain old favourites like the train, but the new version will be significantly improved.
"The new train will be larger, it can certainly contain more people, it'll be a longer ride," he said.
An official opening date still hasn't been officially released. It's expected the park should be finished in the next few months.
