The New Magrath Entrance Park and Storm Water Project

Several years ago the Harold Tanner and L.B. Tanner families generously donated the land that is referenced in this photograph to the Town of Magrath toward the development of parkland near our main north entrance. The parcel to the south of Highway 62 was to be dedicated toward a park recognizing the contributions of the Mayors of Magrath in collaboration with our Magrath Museum and History Association; and the portion north of Highway 62 was to be turned into an attractive park area with a potential water feature. Since that time, the Town applied for and received a grant under our Province’s Community Resilience Program to create a storm water drainage corridor to address a number of serious historic flooding and standing water issues along the northern edge of our community south of Highway 5. This project is 90% government funded under this program and was also to include a storm water retention pond which will be incorporated into this park commencing this spring.  This storm water mitigation project has been needed in our community for many years, and this generous contribution of land and government funding will enable us to achieve these goals and further beautify our community at minimal cost to local taxpayers. 

If you have questions about any aspect of this project as it evolves over the coming year, please contact the Town office.
