WINTERWOOD PARK Splash Pad

We have three words for Winterwood Park Splash Pad:  holy water pressure!  This newer splashpad has some standard features like a fire hydrant and tall aqua dome post, but what make the splash pad interesting is the incredible amount of water that blasts out if it’s structures.  The aqua dome posts usually gently dome water out the top…this one blasted out.  Similarly the usually medium sized fountain sprays were as tall as the surrounding trees.  Impressive and definitely a way to get very wet. read more

SIR WILFRED LAURIER PARK Splash Pad

A nice little green space in the middle of Sandy Hill. Just run through those three yellow rings and you’ll get completely drenched. (If you wait until the splash pad timer runs out, then you can fill up some water buckets from the dribbling water spouts on the ring.)
