Plans for a play fountain at Pembroke playground

A play fountain could soon be built at a Pembroke playground.

According to an application submitted to the Department of Planning, the Parks Department is hoping to install a “splash pad” at the Parson’s Road park.

A section of the application stated: “The splash pad feature has a series of spray nozzles that project water vertically, similar to the water feature located at Snorkel Park enjoyed by many in the community. This will create vibrancy in the park.”

The attraction will consist of a square concrete pad decorated with four large colourful circles and covered with 32 aqua-fan spray nozzles. Water sprayed into the air will be collected by a series of drains on the pad.

No time frame for the project was stated in the application, nor was the cost of the installation.

The playground at the park underwent some temporary repair work last year after damage by vandals. At that time, Acting Public Works Minister Michael Scott said that Ministry had submitted a capital request to replace all of the playground equipment this year.
