Construction is under way at Lion's Park.

Construction is under way in Lion’s Park on three new concession huts, which the city is hoping will be up and running for Founders Day.

The project began on April 4, and is scheduled for completion on Aug. 5. However, acting chief administrative officer Wendy Higashi says she is hopeful the huts can be used for Founders Day.

The project was part of a job creation partnership with the federal and provincial governments. Funding from the government was $37,835.85, plus an additional $8417.25 of in-kind donations from the City of Greenwood.
