Summer time and the living is WET!

THUNDER BAY – LIVING – Here we go, a sure sign that summer is here. Starting today, the City’s splash pads will begin opening for the season starting with the splash pad at Prince Arthur’s Landing.

This splash pad is open seven days per week, from 11 am – 8:30 pm.

The Water Garden Pavilion will also open today and the hours of operation are from 9 am – 9 pm.

The Franklin Park and the County Park splash pads will be open by Friday, June 17.

The North End Park and James Street Playfield splash pads will be open by Friday, June 24.

These splash pads will be open seven days per week, from 11 am – 8 pm. There will be portable washrooms on-site at all splash pad locations.

“We are very excited to start opening the splash pads today,” said Cory Halvorsen, Manager – Parks & Open Spaces. “They are a great way for kids to have fun, get outside for some exercise, and cool off in the summer.”

Staff will be working on-site at the splash pad at Prince Arthur’s Landing. The remaining splash pads will not be staffed this year and the fencing has been removed. Rules of operation will be clearly posted at the sites. Users are asked to follow the rules and to respect other users.
