Today, Mayor Danny Breen was joined by members of City Council, Mrs. Sally Johnson, and family and friends of the late Paul Johnson for the official opening of the Paul Johnson Memorial Park playground.
Mr. Johnson loved his city and his province. He was known for many accomplishments and outstanding financial contributions to the community through the Johnson Family Foundation.
Projects such as the Railway Coastal Museum, Johnson Geo Centre, Grand Concourse, Harbourside Park in downtown St. John’s, Trail of the Caribou Memorial Park in Quidi Vidi, and the ‘Lookout’ on Signal Hill, have all been made possible because of Mr. Johnson. His work has been integral to the creation of numerous amenities enjoyed by residents and visitors to the City of St. John’s.
The playground is located at the Paul Reynolds Community Centre at Wedgewood Park and is a tribute to his life and legacy.
