Councillor Brenda Johnson brought a motion to Council today asking that the splash pads be opened now and also stay open longer in September if the warm weather continues. We are advised that both Binbrook & Winona Splash Pads opened early this afternoon and are ready to enjoy !!

This motion also addresses futures years by requesting that the splash pads be opened for the May long weekend depending on the weather.

This is great news as Councillor Brenda Johnson requested this early opening in this years budget, but council didn’t support it at the time. But Brenda was persistent in her efforts and finally won the battle with unanimous support from her Council.

City crews will begin activating spray pads this afternoon. It will take a few days to get all locations turned on.
