The summer sun has returned and so have the summer visitors, all that is needed is a place to cool off.
The splash park at Rotary Park is slated to be reopened for the community on July 2. This major attraction, at the foot of the World’s Largest Dinosaur, is a great way to beat the heat. And while it is opening, to adhere to health protocols, there are a few changes, to make sure everyone is safe and have a good time.
“In Stage 2, there is still a requirement to maintain 2 meters of distance between people and to isolate the spray park from other features in Rotary Park. Through discussions with Alberta Heath, the Town has determined to use a value of 10 square meters per person to determine occupancy limits that meet the social distancing guidelines.” explained Darryl Drohomerski CAO of the Town of Drumheller
An area for the splash park will be fenced off to control entry and exits. And it will be open daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. There will be a maximum capacity of 64 in the splash park, as determined by the size and social distancing.
The area will be staffed to monitor to make sure patrons are adhering to protocols, and the park will be cleaned hourly. The washroom will also be open and sanitized regularly. The town is able to provide the staff at a cost of about $2,000 weekly.
