Brand-new spray pad coming to Island Lakes

  • Print

Kids in three Winnipeg communities will have new places to cool down next summer.

The Province of Manitoba is set to provide up to $1.5 million to construct spray pads at Gateway Recreation Centre (1717 Gateway Rd.), Waverley Heights Community Centre (1885 Chancellor Dr.), and Lindsey Wilson Park (379 Island Shore Blvd.). Local government minister Ron Lemieux made the announcement at Waverley Heights Community Centre on Aug. 9.

"Water activities can be the best part of outdoor summer fun and spray pads provide flat surfaces that are easily accessible for children of all ages and abilities," Lemieux said in a release. "Parks and playgrounds provide safe places for children and families to gather. These new facilities will also be an exciting and attractive asset to their communities."

The City of Winnipeg will fund the operating costs for all three facilities.

Construction is expected to begin next spring.
