Spray park makes a splash

A new spray park opened in the city with a party June 5.

HYDRO BLAST – Kids obviously enjoyed the opening of the new Leduc spray park June 6.

The city’s second major project for 2015 successfully opened on Saturday, June 6 to sunny skies and large crowds when the spray park welcomed families. The park has been built with a recirculating system that allows it to run similar to a swimming pool providing it the ability to recycle filtered treated water. The spray park’s water reservoir was filled prior to the water shortage allowing it to be put into operation on time. The grand opening for both the spray park and the revitalized Alexandra Outdoor Pool is scheduled for Saturday, June 27.

The spray park will operate seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. with extended hours on holidays. Parents are advised that during the month of June to ensure that the temperature is at least 18 degrees for a comfortable level for children. Babies are required to wear water play diapers while using the park.

The various spray outlets available impressed parents and children and everyone enjoyed the dumping of the big red bucket.

The spray park joins the Leduc Public Library as two of the three major projects Leduc City has scheduled for 2015. The third, a new fire hall, is scheduled for completion in the fall.
