Popular Thunder Canyon Bucket to be Pulled from Splash Pad

THUNDER BAY – In 2017, NetNewsLedger reported, “Fun for the family. In a word that is what parents are saying about Thunder Bay’s newest splash pad at the North End Recreation Centre.

“For many Thunder Bay families, finding safe, fun, and affordable recreation opportunities in the summer presents a challenge. On Monday a visit to the new splash pad which was officially opened last week is to see how this new addition to the local recreation scene is already a hit with families.

“If you consider that laughter is one of the best medicines available, especially laughter by the innocence of children, then the North End Recreation Centre might have to be renamed a healing centre.”

That popular feature is now being removed from the splash pad as a result of complaints apparently from the neighbourhood.
