Splash pads provide fun for kids, relief from summer heat

Ready, set, go! The province has given the green light to allow the Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville to reopen some outdoor amenities and has new guidelines and safety measures for how they are used.

Many local splash pads in town are open to provide some relief from the heat and boredom. Many spray features are available with interactive water play areas.

“We are very excited that the parks are being used and residents enjoy visiting our outdoor spaces,” Mayor Iain Lovatt said.

Benjamin and Elle Smythe cool off with cousins Patrick and Lia Vena.

Splash pads are open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Wheler’s Neighbourhood Park, Madori Neighbourhood Park, Byer’s Pond Park, Gar Lehman Park and Greenwood Park.

To comply with provincial guidelines, residents are reminded to wait their turn as needed as no more than 10 people can use the splash pads at one time. Physical distancing is required and people should limit their play time to 30 minutes.
