Ross Park wading pool conversion

In an effort to create more accessible and sustainable water play in our parks, we are converting selected wading pools to spray parks.

The wading pool at Ross Park has been selected for conversion to a spray park. The new spray park will replace the wading pool and will maintain the same footprint and will include new paving, a variety of spray types, and interactive features.

What's happening

Park Board staff and the spray park design consultants are collecting information on the park and reviewing the existing system.

Visit us at our open house to review design options and share your ideas.
