Splash Pad Development
Fontainebleau Park has been undergoing a gradual redevelopment over the past few years, beginning with a new asphalt walking trail and new accessible play equipment. The next improvement to the park will be the addition of a splash pad where neighbourhood children of all ages can enjoy a place to cool off and have fun during the summer!
“Windsor City Council has long recognized the value of our parks infrastructure and services; that is why I’m so pleased that this year council is investing a record $17.5 million toward improving and upgrading our parks and recreation infrastructure,” said Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens. “We know that these are the kind of amenities that inspire community pride, raise a city’s quality of life and increase our competitiveness when it comes to attracting and retaining new talent and investments.”
Ward 8 Councillor Gary Kaschak is contributing $200,000 of his ward funds toward building the $400,000 splash pad, which will be the first of its kind in Ward 8 when it opens in the summer of 2022.
“Residents have waited a long time for this day, and I am happy to be contributing $200,000 from my ward funds to help make this splash pad a reality for all the families and children in Fontainebleau who have been dreaming and wishing for this in our community,” said Ward 8 Councillor Gary Kaschak. “You deserve it, and today is the start of our splash pad dream becoming a reality.”
