Sun and splash lovers, cross your fingers Saturday.
That’s the day — weather permitting, as always — that Blue Grass Sod Farms Central Spray and Play and the Recreation Centre outdoor pool will open for the season.
The spray and play features a 7,500-square-foot spray pad with 35 spray toys and two dump buckets.
It operates daily from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the northwest corner of Rotary Recreation Park (47A Avenue and 48th Street).
The Recreation Centre outdoor pool is located behind the Recreation Centre (4501 47A Ave.) and features a 50-metre pool for public and lane swimming, one- and three-metre diving boards and a children’s wading pool with spray features.
There are deck chairs for lounging located around the pool.
