Funding partners gathered in Ferland Park on Canada Day for the grand opening of the new spray park.

The spray park was completed at the end of last summer, so this summer is the first time it will be properly used.

Mayor Gerry Thiessen spoke at the opening and mentioned that on a hot day the delighted screams of young kids enjoying the spray park can be heard from quite a way.

Funding partners included: the government of Canada, the Nechako-Kitimaat Development Fund Society, Success by Six and the District of Vanderhoof.

The project involved removing the existing equipment and installing a new spray park.
