Town of St. Marys takes first step toward revitalization of Cadzow Park

NOTE: This project is now scheduled to begin the week of October 31, 2016.  

The Town of St. Marys is moving forward with a multi-year plan to revitalize Cadzow Park. During the week of October 17, the project will officially commence as crews begin the process of removing the park’s 90 year-old outdoor pool.

The decision to remove the pool was made at a meeting of Town Council on Tuesday, August 30. The move was based on research, recommendations from industry experts and staff, as well as feedback from local residents.

The work on the pool is expected to take three days. Crews will then spend an additional two days backfilling and grading the area to restore it to its natural state.

Some parts of the park will be inaccessible while the work is being done, including the pool area and the parking lot, which will be used as the main access point for the demolition crew. The playground should be accessible while the project is being completed; however, it could be closed temporarily if crews determine it is unsafe. 

Due to the nature of the work, there will be an increase in truck traffic on streets surrounding Cadzow Park while the pool is being removed. Please exercise caution when using roadways in the area. 

Additional information about the Cadzow Park revitalization project will be posted on as it becomes available.
