Autumn, the perfect time of year to install a new bench in memory of the park’s friend Dean McGaughin. It is perched on the top of the hill surrounded by fallen leaves with a great view of the park. We hope our community sit for a while and enjoy the view. A second bench will soon be installed near the petanque terrain.
