Rusting playground at Broomhill Park focus of municipal staff probe

Sooke officials to examine safety concerns, replacement plan

  • Jul. 16, 2016 5:00 a.m.

Rusting bars and missing caps on playground equipment at Broomhill Park will be the focus of a District of Sooke staff report.

The report, urged by the parks and trails advisory committee, will also discuss options, including fencing off areas and determining a playground replacement plan.

“We will rely on staff expertise to tell us what needs to be done,” said committee member Mark Zeigler in a presentation to council.

“There is one older structure that is a particular concern that is rusting and kids are still climbing on.”

The report is expected to be completed this fall.
