Hespeler Park in Niverville will soon be a more well-lit space. Town council recently approved the addition of more lights to the park.

The installation of these lights has been completed in phases, the first one taking place about four years ago. At this point, lights run from the Fourth Street North entrance all the way through the park along the walking paths to Crown Valley Road. Lights have also been installed from the Fifth Avenue entrance to the picnic area.

The next set of lights, which will form a line from the baseball diamonds through the south parking lot and up to Crown Valley Road, should be installed before winter hits. The specific timeline, however, will be up to the contractor.

Mayor Myron Dyck says that lighting is an important feature for the park.

“The lights in Hespeler Park were done to provide a safety feature to residents who walk in the park,” he says, “to attract more people to the park, and overall to promote wellness and active living by encouraging people to walk, bike, rollerblade, etc.”

The mayor adds that conversation is ongoing about future park improvements.

“In terms of more development to the park, some additional items to be considered in the next two to ten years would be lights for a ball diamond and soccer field and a potential RV park.”
