Water park finally reopens

After two years of inactivity due to damage from floods, the children's water park in Kelowna City Park will reopen this weekend.

The scheduled opening is Saturday at 8 a.m.

The water park last operated during the summer of 2016. Severe flooding in the spring of 2017 damaged both infrastructure and the water delivery system.

Damage kept the water park closed during both 2017 and 2018.

Work to repair and renovate the park began in March of this year, including a new water delivery and disposal system.

New aquatic play features were also installed. The new design features a nature theme, including large misting grasses, a towering ladybug soaker, spraying woodland critters and spray cannons disguised as wildflowers.

Renovations cost $410,000, which was covered through insurance.

The water park will be open from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. through the summer.
