Splash Pad Set To Open In June


It’s been a long time coming, but Sault Ste. Marie’s first splash pad is set to open in just a few weeks.

Construction began on the $500,000 park late last summer the money raised mostly from local charities such as the Kiwanis club lakeshore and its foundation each raised $42,500 for the project; the rotary club raised $20,000, and Albert Williams charity hockey tournament raised a little over $13,000. The mayor’s youth council also contributed $10,000. The remainder was funded through the city.

Council voted to build the splash pad at Bellevue park instead of locating downtown citing bellevue park already had a lot of the infrastructure in place.

The splash pad committee says the grand opening is set for Saturday June 8.
