The new spray pad at the South Winnipeg Community Centre is now open and is a great way for the community to cool off and enjoy the last weeks of summer.
The spray pad is funded by the Province of Manitoba under the Building Manitoba Fund. This year, the province spent $1.5 million on a total of 3 new spray pads (Gateway Community Centre, Lindsey Wilson Park in Island Lakes and the Waverley Heights Community Centre)
“This investment in a new spray pad at the South Winnipeg Community Centre’s Waverley site creates a place for families to get outside and enjoy active living,” said Minister Caldwell. “The province and the city have both made an important contribution that will promote physical activity.”
