Espanola splash pad project goes out to bid

Espanola council has decided to put the building of a new splash pad out to bid.

The cost of the project is estimated at $368,540 plus annual operating costs of $34,600.

The initial design plan would include a pad nearly 2,500 square feet in size with three play zones for toddlers, families, and pre-teens. 

Councillor Sandra Hayden, who sits on the committee with community members, says she is pleased the council has given the go-ahead on the project. 

Having worked with the various parties to put together this project, she also praised the work done by town staff to finalize the project adding the new splash pad will benefit everyone.

The project will now go through the bidding process and construction is slated to take place in the Spring with a grand opening tentatively set for June.
