Apart from finishing touches the former Village Green tennis courts on the Village Green in have been converted to a basketball, tennis and pickleball facility. The Town of Powerview-Pine Falls initiated a fund raising campaign that included community donations as well as government grants to bring the project to fruition.
Powerview-Pine Falls CAO, Sharon Destiniuk, says it has been encouraging to see the community getting together in support of this project. “It’s a areally good win,” she said. “The community can be proud.” Because of the pandemic, Destaniuk said there likely won’t be a ribbon cutting until next year and she said the revamped courts might not be the end of upgrades to the Village Green. We still have some grants outstanding,” she said. “If we get all that funding, we aren’t done yet.”
