Abstract Developments is providing a $352,000 community amenity contribution that will support upgrades for Rutledge Park and Saanich’s Affordable Housing Trust Fund.

The district recently approved Abstract’s 77-unit multi-family development of one- and two-bedroom homes at 3839 Quadra St., and part of the approval process was a $250,000 contribution to nearby Rutledge Park.

The Quadra Cedar Hill Community Association has been championing upgrades at the park — bordered by Cloverdale Avenue, Inverness Road and Rutledge Street — for more than 20 years

The funds will support efforts to bring a splash pad and ­washroom upgrades to Rutledge Park.

Mike Miller, president and CEO of Abstract Developments, said the company is also providing significant off-site frontage improvements, which include new sidewalks, separated bike paths, landscaped boulevards and an on-site electric Modo vehicle to advance Saanich’s electric-vehicle goals.
