Community reminded of parking availability ahead of busy weekend
(Fort McMurray, AB, April 25, 2012) – MacDonald Island Park would like to inform the community and patrons attending the Suncor Community Leisure Centre and Miskanaw Golf Club Pavilion of current parking availability this weekend.
MacDonald Island Park is set to host Fort McMurray Tourism’s Spring Trade Show & Market from Friday through Sunday as well as the Fort McMurray Swim Club’s 2013 Spring Fling in the Mac LC Meet on Saturday and Sunday.
“Approximately 7% of parking stalls at MacDonald Island have been removed because of construction requirements related to Shell Place,” said Tim Reid, Chief Operating Officer at MacDonald Island Park. “We are in the process of adding 215 stalls on the south side of the Island, with availability scheduled to come online in late summer or early fall. This will represent a 17% overall parking space increase in light of current construction.”
Community members are asked to be mindful of current parking availability and to make arrangements accordingly, including use of car pooling and public transit. Community parking availability will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.
The Fort McMurray Tourism Spring Trade Show and Market hours are as follows:
- Friday: 1:00 pm-9:00 pm
- Saturday: 10:00 am-8:00 pm
- Sunday: 10:00 am-5:00 pm
In coordination with the Fort McMurray Swim Club 2013 Spring Fling in the Mac LC Meet, the Canadian Dewatering 54m Pool is unavailable to non-meet swimmers from 6:00 am on Saturday through 3:00 pm on Sunday, as is the Adult Whirlpool.
