The Historic Sherbrooke Village Development Society took on the project with support from the Sherbrooke Village Museum. Dana O’Connell and Kathleen Pascoe were behind the design work for the project, which is adjacent to the Indigenous Art Centre.

Stephen Flemming, executive director for Sherbrooke Village, said all of the trails, lawn pieces and new park benches are set up. The gazebo is going in this week, and will be wired along with some lighting in the next couple of weeks.

 

Flemming said the stimulus package from the province helped speed the project along, adding he appreciated the efforts of Guysborough Eastern Shore Tracadie MLA Lloyd Hines for helping make the project happen.
