The 16 spray pad locations will operate daily from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

The pads are interactive water play areas with sensors that users can push to use and will be available for Londoners until Sept. 3.

Most wading pools, meantime, will remain closed until July 2, though the location at Springbank Park opens June 11, while the location at 75 Cliftonvale Ave. opens July 3.

The city’s outdoor pools open June 30.

Locations and operation times can be found on the city’s website.
