The Ben Franklin Park Splash Pad ( 188 Knoxdale ) is officially opening tomorrow, Friday July 12, 2019 at 3:00 PM.
Counsellor Keith Egli posted on his twitter and his website about the splash pad opening, but I like his friendly tweet to the mayor inviting him to spending time at the splash pad for the long weekend.
We haven’t personally had a chance to check out this splash pad yet, but we’re looking forward to going sometime soon.
To be perfectly honest, the Ben Frankin Park splash pad wasn’t even on our radar until recently.
The City of Ottawa is part of an open data initiative and they provide free access to many of their data sets, including information about splash pads.
This is where we got some of the information we use on this website. (You can read about the City of Ottawa’s Open Data awesomeness here.)
Ben Franklin Park splash pad isn’t on this list yet, but I imagine it will eventually join the list sometime after the official opening!
(In case you’re wondering, there are 139 splash pads in the list. Well, 140 after you include the Ben Franklin Park Splash Pad!)
Hope you’re having a great summer!
