The splash pad at The Forks has been turned on for the season — finally.
From now until Labour Day, the Variety Heritage Adventure Park’s splash pad can be accessed daily from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., weather permitting.
Parks Canada operates the pad and says the opening was delayed to contractors applying a special chlorine-resistant rubberized coating to the concrete surface.
The upgrades will improve gripping for visitors and increase safety for those using the splash pad.
