Funding for Municipality of East Hants


Funding for two new parks along the Shubenacadie River in Hants County will support community and physical activity for Nova Scotians.

“Projects like these allow people to come together and investing in them is an investment in our seniors, families and youth, and in our communities as a whole,” said MLA for Hants West Chuck Porter, on behalf of Communities, Culture and Heritage Minister Tony Ince. “This project will help people make physical and community activity a part of their daily lives and help to make our communities stronger.”

The Municipality of East Hants will receive $64,500 from the province and funding from other partners. The funding will go towards picnic and restroom facilities, trails, floating docks, road construction, signs and a look off.

“In an area known for its natural beauty, there is no better way to enjoy travelling though the Municipality of East Hants than on the Shubenacadie River,” said Warden Jim Smith. “These parks are a wonderful addition to our community and provide not only a great starting point to access the river, but also a rest location for travellers coming down the historic Shubenacadie Canal on their way to the sea.”

Government is helping to build infrastructure for strong and vibrant communities. Supporting this project makes it easier for individuals and families to enjoy what their communities have to offer and provides opportunities for Nova Scotians to participate in healthy activities.
