Vista Park has a brand new splash pad in Avalon South. When we visited (July 14, 2013), this splash pad wasn’t even listed on the city website or on Google Maps yet! (You can check out the park specs here on the city of Ottawa website.)
A lot of cool things about this park. We loved how they had 4 spray loops in a twist (so it looks like a spiral.) They also have a drinking fountain nearby that includes a spot on the side to rinse your feet and fill up water buckets!
The water pressure here isn’t as strong as some other parks (check out the wall of water from the spray loops at Sir Wilfred Laurier Park) but there’s so much going on here, that this urban water park still rocks.
