New spray park opens for last blast of summer

The summer is ending with a splash for children in West Kelowna.

Construction of the children’s spray park in Westbank Town Centre Park was completed on Friday. The public is invited to test the waters while the weather is still favourable.

“We’re opening the park for a couple weeks, trying out the new systems and ensuring all is in good working order,” said Mayor Doug Findlater.

The project cost $328,000 with $248,445 provided by the Rotary Club of Westbank, $40,000 contributed in in-kind work and $79,555 contributed by the District of West Kelowna. The  spray park features a flower-shaped pad with some 20 motion-sensed spray features.
