Eagle Place Community Association and Parks and Recreation announced last week that construction is about to begin on the new Tutela Park Splash Pad.
Last July, the EPCA made the announcement that the splashed would be finalized by this summer:
“The project has been designed and plans are underway for construction.
We are excited to share concept renderings of the new splash pad.
The design is inspired by the winding Grand River that flows through the Eagle Place neighbourhood. The splash pad will include many different water features that are all fun and exciting in their own way.
Using information collected from the community, we made sure that we included as many different features as we could. Each water feature will be different in its own way and the splash pad will include a variety of ground bubblers, ground sprays, a water spray tunnel, overhead sprays and dump buckets. This new splash pad will make for an awesome day in Tutela Park.
Construction is anticipated to begin fall of 2019 and the splash pad will be ready for play summer of 2020.”
They wrote to Facebook that this week, the park will be buzzing with construction activity. The first steps “and the messy part” will be installing all the underground piping and digging out the walkways and the splash pad area.
Once that is done in about two weeks’ time, the plans are set that things will begin to take shape. From start to finish, the Eagle Place Association anticipates that it will take approximately eight weeks.
More updates will come as construction moves along and will be provided on the City of Brantford website.
