The Grand Opening of the Sarah Beckett Memorial Playground is happening Saturday, August 24th!
The children’s playground is opening in memory of Cst. Sarah Beckett, a West Shore RCMP officer who died in the line of duty when her police cruiser was struck by a drunk driver in 2016.
She is survived by her husband and two young children.
The memorial park’s grand opening takes place between 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and will feature family entertainment, live music, a bouncy castle, face painting, a dunk tank, and more.
The playground, which was partially community funded, features two distinct sections, one designed for children aged 2-5 years old and one with equipment intended for 5-12 year olds.
