Water Parks and Splash Pads

The area of Fort Rouge/East Fort Garry has some great community water features.

Wading pool West Broadway


Ice Cream BDI


As a family, we’ve visited many amazing splash pads, waterslides and outdoor pools.  Our summer is so short, so please take advantage of this incredible +30 weather by hitting up one in your neighbourhood.  It’s a chance to cool off and meet others in the community.

Splash pads and wading pools are free of charge for everyone to enjoy, except those enclosed within the following outdoor pools:

We made it to 7 of 8 water features, and understand how important these places are for our neighbourhoods and kids. We noticed that some were better then others; the potential to do more is there.

What is a summer day without ice cream?  BDI ice cream is fantastic after a day in the water.

Please help elect me to city council so that I can help our communities with these and other important family activities. Vote for Michael Thompson on October 24 to make a positive difference in everyones’ lives.
