Water park grand opening on hold until spring

The Sparwood Water Spray Park is almost complete, but a grand opening will be on hold until spring 2012.

As next summer approaches

The Sparwood Water Spray Park is almost complete, but a grand opening will be on hold until spring 2012.

“For most part things are finished, there is some etching left to do, and there are some issues with the concrete we are dealing with. When the weather started  to turn  on us we decided to push back the grand opening until spring, and that therefore took the panic off to get it complete. We decided as a whole to wait to do a grand opening,” says Danny Dwyer, District of Sparwood Director of Planning and Engineering. The washrooms/change rooms will also be fully operational next spring. “As far as budget and planning go, we were in line on the budget, and we have all of components we hoped for and had budgeted for,” say Dwyer.
