SPLASH PADS:

The City of Ottawa Splash Pads will be in operation from May 19th until September 11th (weather dependant). Splash pad sites are unsupervised.  Some splash pads may require repairs due to unpredictable impact from winter weather which will result in a delayed opening.

As always, I highly encourage all residents to make the most of their summer by partaking in these great City services. Enjoy some sun, get some exercise and above all else enjoy yourself.
