More than 60 trees been planted at Stettler Sports Park.

Thanks to a $10,000 donation from TransCanada, the trees are expected to enhance the park grounds.

“Planting these trees will offer park-goers shade, increase the overall aesthetics of the park and enhance the experience of visitors and spectators while enjoying the space,” said Lee Penner, the director of parks and leisure services for the Town of Stettler.

“We are thrilled that TransCanada provided funds towards this initiative.”

The money translated into mulch and 65 trees, which included aspen, golden willow, dogwood and red elder planted in nine beds, said Jolene Heck of TransCanada.

The company has been operating in the Stettler area for more than 50 years and employs 15 residents.

TransCanada also donated bleachers for the park.

“TransCanada supports projects that ensure the safety communities were we operate, build vibrant communities and protect our environment,” said Terri Steeves, director of field operations for the Rocky Mountain region.

“This initiative was a good fit for TransCanada since it provided an opportunity for community members to work together towards an environmental initiative.”
