Background

The Sister MacNamara Wading Pool was decommissioned in fall 2017 after reaching the end of its serviceable life. The Council adopted Recreation, Leisure and Library Facility Policy specifies that older wading pools will be replaced over time with the introduction of a better wading pools or spray pads in the vicinity.

The new, accessible spray pad will complement the existing outdoor pool as well as recent site improvements, including the new playground, skateboard park and hockey rink.

The City intends on restoring the Sister MacNamara Park site to green space and is looking to the public for input into the former wading pool site. Potential amenities could include a tot play structure, outdoor fitness equipment, a walking path, a basketball court, small hills, picnic tables and benches.
