Splash Park open for business

Public asked to avoid muddy, roped-off areas

The Town of Ponoka announced June 28 via press release that the splash park improvements are completed and the facility is officially open for business, just in time for the Canada Day long weekend.

The splash park, located in Lions Centennial Park off of Hwy. 2A, is now open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily, free of charge, all summer.

Improvements include a new underground water service, mechanical and electrical upgrades and new nozzle jets.

The project experienced some rain delays but the town says staff and contractors worked hard to complete the work in time for the long weekend.

Because of the recent heavy rains, the ground around the splash park is quite muddy and the town is asking the public to avoid the roped-0ff area to prevent mud from being tracked onto the splash park play pad.

The area behind the splash park operations building, which has also been roped off, will be sodded once the ground has a chance to dry up a bit.
