(Kahnawake – 3, Onerahtohkó:wa /May 2017) Mohawk Online Limited (“Mohawk Online”) is pleased to announce that it has made a donation in the amount of $100,000 for the construction of a Splash Pad / Water Activity Park in Kahnawake.
“With the construction of the St-Lawrence Seaway in the 1950’s, Kahnawake lost an important part of our traditional way of life, which was highly dependent upon access to the river,” said Ietsénhaienhs Gina Deer of the Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke. “While construction of a water activity park will not magically restore access to the river, it will help reconnect with the importance of water in our traditions, and encourage social interaction and physical activity for Kahnawake’s youth.”
The Splash Pad will be located in the center of Kahnawake, and be an addition to the current Orville’s Park playground, adjacent to the Kahnawake Recreational Path and Town Rink and part of an overall recreation concept.
The Splash Pad / Water Activity Park is expected to be completed in late June 2017.
