Splash pad launched in Crestview

  • Print

Parents in the Crestview area have a new place to take their kids to cool off on a hot summer’s day.


The city and province announced the launch of a new splash pad at the St. James-Assiniboia Centennial Pool complex on Mon., June 17.


The project received $500,000 from the Building Communities Initiative, according to a release issued by the province. That sum is cost-shared equally by the city and province.


The pool, located at 644 Parkdale St., now features a splash pad with 14 above-ground spray features, five ground spray features, picnic tables, benches, pathways and landscaping, according to the release.


The city also contributed $250,000 to expand the pool’s adjoining parking lot, and has put $1.1 million toward upgrades to the pool itself, including replacing its boiler system, installing an ultra-violet disinfection system for reduced chemical use, locker replacements and multi-purpose sport room flooring replacement.


"This project has been tailored to meet the needs of the families in the Crestview-Westwood area and will be a wonderful addition to the St. James-Assiniboia Centennial Pool complex," Mayor Sam Katz states in the release.


Assiniboia MLA Jim Rondeau, who spoke at the launch on behalf of Local Government Minister Ron Lemieux, said such projects "show how important we believe it is for children and families to enjoy healthy outdoor activities."
