Site of new spray park gets landscaping upgrade

Colwood Creek Park’s makeover is nearly complete.

In addition to the opening of a splash pad earlier this summer, City crews have completed landscaping work in order to fix the park’s drainage issues.

“What used to be a persistent mud puddle in the park is now a landscape feature that provides natural filtration for the spray and play area,” communications manager Sandra Russell said in a statement.

Russell noted that the wide open green spaces at the park make it a natural gathering place that could lend itself to a gazebo or even a small band shell in the future, as well as other recreational features.

Additional parking spaces are being considered, as the park’s spray area has already proven to be popular with families, she added.
