A Greater Vernon recreational amenity has been given a corporate boost.  To mark its 60th anniversary, Vernon-based Kal Tire has supported the construction of an outdoor play area at the Vernon Recreation Complex. The project includes recycled tire products. “The community will benefit for years to come,” said Robert Ford, Kal Tire president. “Using recycled tire product for recreational resurfacing is ideal: the surfaces are resilient and nearly maintenance-free; they are safe, attractive and inclusive for everyone to use; and it is a responsible way to use recycled tires.” Kal Tire has also supported projects in Hope, Sechelt, Nelson, Osoyoos and Vancouver. “We’re excited about each of these projects because these parks and playgrounds will give families in these communities a fun and safe place to play,” said Foord.
