The local Health Facility has recently expanded its mandate to open up the facility to more community programs. As a result, both organizations share a mandate to offer wellness opportunities for the people of Birch Hills and area.  In 2003 and 2004, the Health Facility and Recreation Board partnered to involve the residents of Birchview Nursing Home in the playground program.  The grand opening was held in June 2005.   Entrance to the Park is on the south side of the Birchview Home around back.
