PRINCE ALBERT, Sask. – The future of outdoor waterslides may be in jeopardy according to the mayor of Prince Albert, Sask.

The northern Saskatchewan city announced on Tuesday that Kinsmen Water Park will not be opening its waterslides to aquatic enthusiasts this summer after an inspection found the slides are in need of a complete rebuild.

Rebuilding the waterslides is estimated at $260,000.

Mayor Greg Dionne is calling for community partners to step forward with their wallets.

“We require a minimum of a $200,000 commitment from an outside organization,” said Dionne.

The waterslides were funded by the city and the Kinsmen Club in 1986.

All other areas of the water park will be available to the public when it opens for the season on June 6.
