The Dorset Lions Club has done what the municipality of Algonquin Highlands asked them to do, ask the township of Lake of Bays to support the re-development project.

The lions say the plan would remove the Dorset ball diamond, and add a half-court for basketball.

The project would also include pathways around the park.

Both municipalities are on board with the project, which will cost $85,000.

Each Lions club has been asked to do a legacy project within their community to celebrate their 100th year of service in 2017.
