Spray Pads and Wading Pools


Spray Pads

Spray pads are interactive water play areas and have sensors that users push to activate the features.  Spray pads use potable water. Spray pads are unsupervised and have no standing water. 

These free amenities will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. daily starting June 12, 2020.

The City will not be supervising or sanitizing spray pads. Pads are cleaned and inspected daily. Use of the spray pads is at your own risk.  On-site washrooms will not be available for use at this time.

 

The City is reminding residents that heath measures remain in place to stop the of COVID-19 in the community. While using spray pads, please continue to follow these measures:

  • Stay two metres away from others at all times on the pad and surrounding area
  • Sneeze or cough into your sleeve or elbow or cover with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash
  • Follow all social gatherings guidelines
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer
  • If you are feeling, unwell we suggest you get tested for Covid

Signs will be posted at each of the spray pad locations indicating all health measures and precautions. Some features have been disabled to prevent close proximity of users.
