NORTH BAY — The North Bay Waterfront Development Committee announced Monday morning that a second splash pad had been approved for a Seymour St. location.
“After announcing the location of North Bay’s first splash pad, we were approached about approving a second one,” says committee member Jason Ashburn. “At first I was skeptical, but after a long night spent looking very hard at the location, I’ve come around.”
“I think everyone is going to love it.”
North Bay’s second splash pad, which Ashburn hopes will be open “as soon as possible,” will be located directly behind 1420 Seymour Street.
“It’s an ideal location. Wacky Wings is there if you want a snack, and Fanny’s if there if you’re thirsty.”
“Fun for the whole family!”
The Waterfront Development Committee has received a “sizable” donation to go towards the creation of the “Fanny’s Family Entertainment Splash Pad.”
The bursting waters of the splash pad will be open to the public from 8 am to 9 pm, and then to paying customers from 9 pm to 3 am.
“It’s fun for the whole family!” explained Ashburn. “During the day, parents and families will have a place to stay cool and have fun, and at night, everyone over 18 can get hot and have fun in the exact same place!”
“From 3 am to 8 am, the pad will be closed for sanitization.”
The Development Committee, made up of Jason Ashburn, Fred Roberts, Thomas Pierre, Adam Wright and Nicole Vaughan voted 4 to 1 in favour of the location.
“So it’s going in, and it’s going in fast” gasped Ashburn.
“Hold onto your butts, North Bay!”
