Just in time for the next heat wave, the three municipal splash pads in Lindsay, Bobcaygeon, and Fenelon Falls in the City of Kawartha Lakes open for the season beginning Friday (June 26) — but with some restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The splash pads will be open daily from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
However, the number of participants allowed into each splash pad area at one time will be limited.
In addition, the water flow of the splash pads will be stopped every couple of hours to allow for sanitization of the facilities. Water flow will be unavailable from 1 to 2 p.m. and from 4 to 5 p.m.
The Elgin Park Splash Pad (which is wheelchair accessible) is located at 162 Angeline Street North in Lindsay, the Tommy Anderson Park Splash Pad is at 94 Dunn Street in Bobcaygeon, and the Garnet Graham Park Splash Pad is at 98 Francis Street West in Fenelon Falls.
The washrooms at the splash pads will also be open (the washrooms at the Elgin Park Splash Pad are accessible).
The City of Kawartha Lakes will provided further information on the logistics of the splash pad soon. We will update this story when those details are available.
