Project Description

This renovation provides for the improvement of the playground and the conversion of the existing wading pool into a spraypark.

The playground renovation will provide for new play equipment, site improvements to enhance use and safety and access improvements to facilitate use by all users.

The spraypark conversion project will have a number of spray features intended primarily for children. Key considerations in designing the project are safety, water/energy conservation and selection of spray features that the community finds engaging.
