Canadian Tire to build new facility in Victoria Park

In partnership with the City of Charlottetown, Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities announced recently that it will build a universally accessible playground in Victoria Park under Jumpstart’s Inclusive Playground Project initiative. 

At 9,000 square feet, the accessible playground is the first of several to be built across Canada with the help of Jumpstart funding, and will be among the largest universally accessible playgrounds in Prince Edward Island.

Victoria Park is Charlottetown’s most visited park, and the playground will sit next to an accessible pool with accessible amenities close to transit. The groundbreaking is scheduled for June 2018 with an anticipated opening date of August 2018. The playground structure will be a gift from Jumpstart to the City of Charlottetown.

The playground announcement follows Canadian Tire Corporation’s $50 million fundraising commitment over five years in support of Jumpstart Charities’ “Play Finds A Way” movement which focuses on removing accessibility barriers to sport and play. The movement is made up of three distinct programs: the Jumpstart Inclusive Playground Project, Jumpstart Accessibility Grants and the Parasport Jumpstart Fund. The five-year fundraising commitment from Canadian Tire Corporation, will allow Jumpstart to focus funding efforts towards accessible playgrounds, infrastructure and programming in order to provide access to play and sport for children of all abilities.
