Donal Park

With 40 years spent living, playing and working in the Greater Trail Area. Lisa (my spouse of 21 years), my son Zach (12) and I have a large appreciation for what Trail has provided us with.

After graduating from J .L. Crowe in 1990, I have built a 20+-year career doing business in the Greater Trail area. I have actively volunteered with the Junior A Smoke Eaters (2000 to 2003), and I have held numerous positions with minor hockey from 2009 to the present. Currently, I am the GTMHA President and WKMHA treasure. As a member of the joint amalgamation committee, we saw our hard work materialize during the 2012/2013 hockey season when our local minor hockey associations joined to form the Greater Trail Minor Hockey Association.

Growing up in Trail has had many rewards. The opportunities are abundant.

During this time of change, I believe the City of Trail has the ability to show leadership and be an influential partner in our area.

I would appreciate your vote of support on Election Day, so I may give back to the area that has provided my family with so much opportunity and continued success. With my expertise, perspective and determination, I believe I can be a positive member of the team that wishes to take our area forward and continue to provide opportunities to all that call this area “Home.”
