The Rotary Club of Palgrave has partnered with the Town of Caledon to fund and retrofit the Westview
Park located in the Village of Palgrave and make it completely accessible to adults and children alike. 
The park is located at 19 Brawton Drive has been renamed the Norma Bangay Park.
The goal of the $85,000 project is to make this park a fully inclusive and accessible play and gathering
space for the entire Palgrave community to enjoy.  The new playground equipment, excavation work
and accessibility upgrades will allow seniors, families and individuals with special needs to access and
use new upgraded park facilities.  Construction for this project is scheduled for the Spring of 2018. 
The park is dedicated to Norma Bangay to commemorate her contribution to children’s education in the
local community.  Norma began teaching in 1959 at the one room schoolhouse in Castlederg.  Upon the
closure of this school in 1962, she moved to Palgrave Public School where she taught kindergarten until
her retirement in 1994.  Norma continued to volunteer at local schools well after retirement, working
with young readers who needed extra attention.  Well loved by students and the community, Norma
had a positive and lasting influence on several generations of Palgrave students.
The Rotary Club of Palgrave gratefully acknowledges the financial support of the Brampton and Caledon
Community Foundation, a public, community foundation serving the people of Brampton and Caledon. 
We would also like to thank Brampton Brick Limited and Sierra Excavating Enterprises Inc. for their
generous sponsorship and contributions towards the park upgrade.
