The project was supported by a $300,000 Ontario150 Community Capital Program grant.

"This new state-of-the-art splash pad will be a great addition to the north end of Peterborough,” says Councillor Andrew Beamer. “The new playground equipment, modern splash pad and accessible features throughout the park will ensure that families will continue to enjoy the park for years to come.”

The Barnardo Park Splash Pad (955 Barnardo Avenue) will be open daily throughout the summer from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
