When is the last time your family has checked out Merritt's own Central Park? Did you know, there is a skate park, mountain bike hills, a playground, a walking trail and a lacrosse box to either shot some basketball hoops or hit a street hockey ball around. Or come rest your feet and watch some free softball games. While enjoying a evening of fun come support the LNB Digger's BBQ fundraiser/concession of burgers, hot dogs, pop and possible freezies if you get too hot!
