The Sturgeon Heights Community Centre will be getting a new spray pad and playground.
A groundbreaking ceremony was held at the centre, located at 210 Rita St., on Oct. 4 to announce the new additions to the site.
The spray pad costs a total of $659,000, according to a release. Three-hundred thousand dollars came from the Building Communities Initiatives II Phase One, and $359,000 came from the Manitoba-Winnipeg Recreation and Leisure Infrastructure Program.
The play structure costs $125,000, funded by the BCI II Phase Two.
The spray pad will have 14 in-ground and 10 above-ground spray features, and the new play structure is expected to meet City of Winnipeg design standards.
