McConnell Estate Mobility-Accessible Outdoor Space is Taking Shape

Hillary Johnson

Construction on a gazebo and a mobility-accessible walkay located on the grounds of McConnell Estate in Terrace is starting to take shape.

The project is a collaboration between Terraces' two rotary clubs; Northern Health, Progressive Ventures and others.

Rotary Club of Terrace member, David Oatway, says the concept for the project has been in the works for a couple of years now, but construction began in October.


"This project is to provide an outdoor space for the residents of McConnell Estates so that they can come out in the summertime, shorter seasons and enjoy the outdoors; otherwise it's kind of an unused space and anytime that they wanted to do something outside, it was going out in the front in the parking lot. This provides something in the rear, on a nice green space overlooking the city of Terrace."


Oatway says there is still a lot to do, but the finishing touches will have to wait until spring.


"Things like putting some siding on the Gazebo and paint it, clean up the construction mess that we have made and do some landscaping, plant some grass, possibly some shrubs and some park benches and things like that."


Oatway says the residents were very excited to hear about the new outdoor space and are looking forward to utilizing these new additions. The estimated completion date is mid May 2020 and when it's time, Oatway says they will be hosting a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the unveiling.
