Millenium Greenhouses is supporting the new water play area in Ladner’s Memorial Park for local children and families with a generous donation of $3,000 to the Ladner Rotary Splash Park opening this summer. The gift is made in trust to the splash park through the Delta Foundation.

Millennium Pacific Greenhouses, on Arthur Drive in Ladner, grows seven types of tomatoes on hundreds of thousands of plants. The family-run business is a 30-acre modern hydroponic greenhouse delivering vine-fresh tomatoes to retail grocers. Millenium is one of six local greenhouse producers which have contributed to the splash park project along with the rest of the local farming community.

The $650,000 Ladner Rotary Splash Park is a partnership between the Rotary Club of Ladner, with the support of several sponsors and donors, and the City of Delta. The theme of the water play area will honour our farming heritage.
