LePage Park, the City of Whitehorse main hub for arts and culture performances, is in dire need of a facelift. The decking and boardwalk boards are old and breaking making it unsafe to walk on. Tree roots are lifting the tiles up causing unstable gait and difficult access to the park’s users. The lawn needs some TLC and makes it hard to clean broken glass around the music stage. The Park was last renovated in the early 90’s. It has been over 15 years since then. LePage Park is due for a makeover.
The Yukon Historical and Museums Association (YHMA) is responsible for the maintenance of the Park on behalf of the City of Whitehorse. Our small organisation is aware of the important role that LePage Park plays to the arts & culture community, locals, Yukoners and tourists included. We want to see the Park as a safe and vibrant place where diverse activities and performances can take place.
This year, Phase One, YHMA will undertake the renovations of the main decking area and of the balcony of Smith House (Music Yukon’s home).Next year during Phase Two (2019) we intend to renovate the boardwalk and the area around the main music stage. We are getting some funding from Lotteries Yukon and local sponsors like Kilrich Industries LTD, Yellow Truck Excavating Inc. and the City of Whitehorse are helping as well with some contributions but we still need some help.
If you feel that LePage Park plays an important role in your life and a vital role in our community, please contribute and feel free to spread the word.
YHMA thank you for your support.
