It’s time to drain some Spirit.

After years bad drainage and pooling water, Anmore is gearing up for a $500,000 upgrade to Spirit Park, thanks to an infusion of $375,000 from the federal government, the village announced Wednesday.

The upper section of the park is generally unusable for four to six months each year, according to a release from the village. The work is intended to keep the water in the ground, increase access to the park and pay for a new playground.

The grant funding will help Anmore make “critical improvements” to the parks, stated Anmore Mayor John McEwen in a press release.

The work is set to coincide with the construction of the village’s first purpose-built civic building in Anmore, set to cost approximately $8 million.

“We can’t wait to gather with Anmore residents to enjoy the completed improvements to the park and the new Hub,” McEwen stated.

The hall is set to include administration offices, council chambers that will facilitate the live-streaming of meetings, as well as a spot for a concession and washrooms that can be used when Anmore hosts events at Spirit Park.
