City hopes to re-open Mill Lake Spray Park soon

Pump needed repair, but first replacement was damaged in shipping

A favourite hot-weather destination for parents and their children may soon be back in operation.

The Mill Lake Spray Park has been closed since Aug. 21 after a pump needed repairing. But the first pump ordered by the city was damaged in shipping, which has delayed the repair process as temperatures have risen.

The city says a second pump is set for delivery today, and the hope is to re-open the spray park tomorrow afternoon or evening.

In the meantime, users have been directed to another splash park at Spud Murphy Park, 32285 Hillcrest Avenue.
