Two parks in the province are being named in honour of PEI’s medal-winning athletes from the Paralympics, Mark Arendz and Billy Bridges.
Brookvale Ski Park is being renamed the Mark Arendz Provincial Ski Park at Brookvale. Arendz is humbled by the honour and hopes it can serve as an inspiration for young Islanders and help them realize they can achieve their goals and dreams.
A new fully-accessible park in Summerside will be named Billy Bridges Park. Bridges says it’s a special honour with a park that will benefit many families.
