The Irricana Town Office is empathetic when it comes to the disappointment you have faced regarding the Splash Park. We were excited when we had the proper equipment to get it back up and running this year. Unfortunately to our demise, we had a pipe burst underground that ruined that excitement, upon meeting with contractors we were given the bad news and repairs will cost us thousands of dollars and will result in the closure of the splash park for yet another summer. At this stage we are contemplating whether or not the cost to repair the underground damage is worth it or whether it would be more beneficial to start fresh with a new and improved look. Please take a look at the three options we have been given to revitalize/renovate the splash park and provide us with feedback by filling out our Irricana Splash Park Survey and send it back to email@example.com or drop it off at the Town Office. This project will be funded through The Municipal Sustainability Initiative and the The Aviva Community Fund. We would also like your feedback on the 3 possible locations for the splashpark: 1. Irricana Lions Park on 1st Ave. 2. Founders Park Campground 3. Leave it at the current location Here is a comparison chart that shows water usage, timelines and costs for each proposal: Proposals and Price Comparison for New Splash Pad Proposal #1: Irricana Splashpad #1 - 2017 08 02 Proposal #2: Irricana Splashpad #2 - 2017 08 02-r Proposal #3: Playworks - IrricanaSplashParkAB_Mar0617 click on the following link: Proposal - Irricana Phase 2 - 18Jul2017 for a cost breakdown for proposal #3 with flow through system.
