Splash Pad Woes

As many of you are aware, our brand new splash pad — installed 2016 — is not working.  This is not how we would choose to spend the first really hot and humid week of the summer, but here we are.

We are hoping for a quick repair Wednesday evening/Thursday morning.  If all goes well, the splash pad will be operational.  If not, a major repair may be needed (including the nightmare of all plumbing repairs:  digging up the pipes).  Let’s all keep our fingers crossed the easier solution will work.

We will hear the happy sounds of children playing in the splash pad again soon!

  1. Just walked through the park…happy sounds!!! Water ‘s a-splashing!

  2. A gentleman walking his dog this morning in Durand Park informed me that it was an act of vandalism which closed the splash pad. This morning, four picnic tables are turned over. He said a woman witnessed two men turning over the tables around 11 PM last night, “to keep the (expletive) Muslims out of the park.” I am disgusted! I’ll bet these same vandals are responsible for the fire damage to one of the tables I saw earlier this summer. Unlike racism and xenophobia, everyone is welcome in this neighbourhood, city, province, and country.
