Esquimalt Splash Pad
The Splash Pad at Esquimalt's Adventure Park (township of Esquimalt)

Families and kids in particular will be happy to hear that Esquimalt’s Adventure Park will be turning on the taps for its popular splash pad on Monday.

The Township of Esquimalt says they are bringing back the park’s water features in line with the Province’s phased COVID-19 reopening strategy.

Water to the splash pad will be turned on from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily along with the park’s adjacent washroom, subject to change depending on maintenance requirements.

The fenced Adventure Park also includes seating and a playground.

The Township of Esquimalt says that the park typically sees a consistent flow of visitors during the summer months and asks that users follow health guidelines and maintain physical distancing.

They suggest that if the park appears too busy that visitors consider returning later.

“We’re pleased to have such a wonderful community amenity to offer our residents,” said Mayor Barbara Desjardins. 

“It doesn’t feel like summer in Esquimalt until the splash pad is going.”
