Summer fun is making a gradual comeback in Penticton.
Splash pads have been reopened as the city moves into Phase 3 of its restart plan.
The public splash pads are open as of Friday, June 26. All users are reminded to take precautions while using the splash pads, including washing your hands before and after use and maintaining two-metre physical distancing. Those who feel sick or have a fever are asked to stay home.
The city used the announcement as an opportunity to thank the Rotary Club of Penticton, which donated $50,000 toward a new splash pad at Skaha Lake Park.
The Rotary Club plans to donate $150,000 over three years toward the project, which is tentatively set to begin construction in 2022.
