Vermont Square Splash Pad

Good news from Councillor Vaughan’s office with regards to the Vermont Square Splash Pad hours:

“… the wading pool at Vermont Square will be open for business on Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 to 5:00 for the remainder of the summer!”

This is particularly good news for families of our neighbourhood and surrounding communities as the summer weather appears to be finally upon us.

Many thanks to Dale Duncan, Constituency Assistant to City Councillor Adam Vaughan for her quick response and commitment to fixing the splash pad hours.
