Multiple levels of government are coming together to create a new spray pad at Adsum Park in northwest Winnipeg.

“Community projects of this scale are possible when various levels of government work together for the benefit of Winnipeggers,” said Devi Sharma, city councillor for Old Kildonan. “Spray pads offer affordable fun during our beautiful summers, and I know that families in our community are going to enjoy this amenity for years to come.”

The 3,000-square-foot spray pad will also include pathways, picnic tables and a bike rack, among other features.
