In partnership with The Rotary Club of Barrie, the COVID-19 Heroes and Memorial Garden is being created in Sunnidale Park. The space where the old playground was located will be transformed into a garden complex and plaza recognizing the impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on our lives and community.

The Rotary Club of Barrie has been diligently working on the garden. In the fall, the foundation for new pathways was laid, planting beds were established, and trees, plants and seed were set.

To protect the planting, the garden area will remain fenced until the garden is officially complete and opened in Summer 2024. The remaining works to be completed include the installation of the final layer of granular for the pathways, seating, and garden plaza features.
