City Council made a motion to cancel the William Hawrelak Park Water Play Feature project.

The project will be resubmitted in the 2019-2022 capital budget for consideration.

Project Overview

On June 11, 2013, Citizens Services Committee (formerly Community Services Committee) approved funding for the design and construction of a water play feature in William Hawrelak Park.

It will be located near the existing playground and will feature a spray deck and a shallow wading pool. Picnic tables, pathways, and washrooms are also included in the project.

Construction began in 2015 and open for public use in 2017 and will cost $2.9 million ($2.1 million for the water play feature / $800,000 for washrooms).
