You’ll be able to beat the heat in Essex with the reopening of all three splash pads in the community on Friday.

Town of Essex splash pads in Essex Centre, Harrow, and Colchester, will reopen from 9am to 9pm. Parents and guardians are reminded that splash pad users will still be required to follow physical distancing as recommended by public health officials. New signage has been installed to remind splash pad visitors of the requirements.

“While we are opening these splash pads to give local youth a chance to cool down during hot weather, it’s important that users, parents, and guardians remain vigilant and continue to follow the direction of public health officials,” said Mayor Larry Snively. “We ask that all of our citizens continue to do their part to stop the spread and protect our community.”

Each splash pad location will include new hand sanitizing stations. Under Council direction, the Colchester splash pad will also be monitored on Saturdays and Sundays by Town of Essex staff to remind users to comply with physical distancing.

Prior to reopening, all Town of Essex splash pads were inspected by the Windsor Essex County Health Unit to ensure compliance with local guidelines.
