The splash pad at Fairfield Park in Gloucester is probably a 4 star splash pad. I say “probably” because it was broken the day we went to splash around.
Two nice fellas from the city of Ottawa explained that there was a problem with the computer, but it would be fixed soon, and sorry about the inconvenience. Who knew there were computers running these sprinklers!
Fairfield Park has a modern water park:
- There are two giant flowers which probably pour water down the petals (like the splash pad at Cardinal Creek.)
- There are two painted ground sprinklers that probably send a shower up (like the Roy Duncan Park splash pad.)
- There a yellow ring of misty fun (like at Silverbirch Park)
The only question is what’s the water pressure like?
Our two-year old daughter is learning to go potty when she has that ‘funny feeling.’ (Thank goodness for Mo Willems and Smarties. He’s our favourite author right now and he blogs as well which is pretty darn cool.)
