Sharpe Splash & Play Park Update
Landscaping work has begun at the Sharpe Splash & Play Park. The landscaping company is confident that with the weather forecast and water from an alternative local water source that we will be able to manage to keep the sod wet enough over the coming weeks.
We will be watering the new sod at the splash park using an alternate water source (Pit Pond) for this, and not the municipal water supply as users of the Springhill Water Utility are still under a conservation order. There will be staff and equipment on Pond Drive near the walking trail pumping water into our truck to facilitate this work, and walking trail users should be aware of this.
The park will remain closed to the public until the sod has an opportunity to take root. We fully expect to be able to safely open the playground portion of the park once the sod is established. Two parking lots have been completed on Mechanic Street and Chapel Street.
The Splash Pad will be ready for use as soon as conditions permit in the Spring.
