Churchbridge Community Campground Recognized at the 15th Annual Saskatchewan Municipal Awards

Churchbridge Community Campground (Saskatchewan, Canada) has received the Town of Churchbridge recognition during the 15th Annual Saskatchewan Municipal Awards, where five innovative projects were acknowledged.

As per a report, the Saskatchewan Municipal Awards recognize the outstanding and innovative work of the municipal authorities in Saskatchewan. The winners of this year’s awards have revitalized their communities by transformation and restoration.

The first-place award went to the Riverhurst Wetland (Village of Riverhurst) for restoring an area of wetland that will bring both economic and environmental benefits to the local community.

The second place was awarded to the Churchbridge Community Campground, which has been transformed into a resource that provides economic benefits through tourism and gives residents more opportunities to enjoy recreational activities.

Renea Paridaen, a town administrator, stated that recently, numerous additions had been made to the campground.

“Two years ago the 12-hole Churchbridge Credit Union Disc Golf Course became a reality, utilizing the trees, bushes and other natural features throughout the park to create one of the area’s most challenging disc golf courses,” detailed the nomination form for the award forwarded to Yorkton This Week by Paridaen. It’s a popular sport for all ages which can even be played in the winter, offering a uniquely new, fun, and inexpensive form of outdoor physical activity.”

The town is currently working on creating an extensive walking path that runs through and around the campground. Once completed, it will measure roughly 1.3 km, offering walkers an exciting path that weaves through the forest stands and, eventually, marshes.

“Although it has only been available for a year, it has already proven to be a popular venue for young and old to enjoy a leisurely walk in nature, or a good, exhilarating jog.”

Additional amenities have been added to the site too.

The winners will be recognized at the SARM Annual Convention and Tradeshow on March 15 and at the SUMA 2022 Convention and Tradeshow on April 5. Both events will take place in the Queensbury Convention Centre in Regina.
