The City of Winnipeg will keep spray pads open later in the evening, effective today.

Spray pads at 12 locations will operate until 9 p.m. instead of closing at 7 p.m., chief administrative officer Phil Sheegl told members of council via email.

On Wednesday, several councillors requested longer hours, due to the warm weather.

The locations are as follows:

  • Central Park Spray Pad (400 Cumberland Ave.)
  • Fort Rouge Spray Pad (295 River Ave.)
  • Lindenwoods Spray Pad (414 Lindenwoods Drive West)
  • Provencher Park Spray Pad (620 Rue Langevin)
  • River East Spray Pad (1400 Rothesay St.)
  • River Heights Spray Pad (1370 Grosvenor Ave.)
  • St. James Assiniboia Centennial Pool Spray Pad (644 Parkdale St.)
