New Baby Swings Installed at Rembrandt Park

A new set of baby swings have been installed at Rembrandt Park in Côte Saint-Luc. What makes this unique, he notes, is the fact they were paid for by an anonymous donor.

The swings, in fact, are dedicated in memory of the children who perished at the Mauthausen-Gusen Nazi concentration camp in Austria. This is a perfect example of how the city’s new sponsorship program, which he unveiled last fall, can work to the benefit of the community at large.

In this particular case the cost was about $2,000. After we announced our new sponsorship guidelines, a constituent asked me whether we could put new baby swings in the park. I told him it was not presently in the budget, but told him about the sponsorship option. His parents are Holocaust survivors as are a number of residents of Rembrandt Avenue. He generously provided the financing, but wishes to remain anonymous. I really do hope others follow his example in the future.
