THUNDER BAY – LIVING – In an unexpected turn of events, the popular splash pad at Prince Arthur’s Landing has officially closed for the summer season ahead of schedule due to a malfunction in its main filter pump.

The beloved splash pad at Prince Arthur’s Landing, originally slated to remain open until September 17, has been temporarily closed after a critical mechanical issue emerged. The decision was made in response to the unexpected failure of the main filter pump.

Catherine Wilson, the Community & Event Development Coordinator, explained, “With the arrival of fall temperatures combined with mechanical issues, the decision was made to close a bit earlier than expected. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.”

Wilson also extended her gratitude to the local residents and visitors who enjoyed the Waterfront throughout the summer, expressing the city’s anticipation to welcome everyone back next year.

Water Garden Pavilion to Stay Open

While the splash pad may be closed, the Water Garden Pavilion will continue to provide enjoyment until mid-October. The Pavilion will operate daily from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m. For inquiries and additional information, please contact the Water Garden Pavilion at 807-684-2080.
