LETHBRIDGE, AB – Plenty of building activity is taking place right now at Legacy Park on Lethbridge’s north side.
Construction is underway on a large spray park, which, if all goes as planned, should be completed at some point in August.
Parks Manager, Dave Ellis, says this spray park will end up being the largest one in the city. “There’s three distinct areas. There’s a small area for toddlers to discover water play, then there’s the family area where multiple ages can play, and then the third area is more of the adventure thing.”
There will be around 50 different toys included in the Legacy Spray Park, which will cost around $1.3-million to build.
A discovery play area is Legacy Park’s other new amenity, which Ellis says will be unlike any other playground in the city. He says it’s meant to be inclusive of all ages and abilities, and be more of a creative place with all sorts of things for kids to play with.
Unlike the spray park, the play area won’t be finished until the end of the year.
