SD&G – A new ice pad at the Char-Lan Recreation Center and sprucing up the Glengarry Sports Palace are among six recreation projects in Cornwall and SD&G getting joint federal-provincial grants.

MP Eric Duncan and MPP Jim McDonell announced a combined total of just over $5.2 million Thursday through the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP).

North Dundas received the largest sum of money (just over $1.9 million) for the development of Hallville Community Park.

The others are fixing up the Glengarry Sports Palace in North Glengarry, replacing the ice pad at the Char-Lan Recreation Center in South Glengarry, adding a “safe and functional” community hub at Centre Charles-Emile-Claude in Cornwall and for South Stormont it’s pavilions and a couple of play units for the parks.

Each of the municipalities has to cover a share of the project under the ICIP agreement.
