General Manager of Community Services, Moira Green, mentioned that they’ve hired a third-party contractor that does security sweeps of specific areas like Centennial Park, the Spray Park, Parkour Park, some of the recreational facilities as well as Toboggan Hill parking lot and bathroom and skate park area.
