The City of Guelph has launched a design for the new splash pad and washrooms at Hanlon Creek Park, which will be built in spring 2021.
A solar pergola and solar panels on the washroom roof will use renewable energy to supply 100 per cent of the splash pad’s power requirements.
The fully accessible splash pad and washrooms will feature new equipment with accessible surfacing, barrier-free washrooms including one universal washroom that is gender-neutral, a water fountain, and solar shade pergola and seating including picnic areas and tables.
The splash pad and washrooms at Hanlon Creek Park are being replaced because they have reached the end of their lifecycle.
The new splash pad will also include an updated high-efficiency re-circulation water system that automatically monitors water quality, requiring fewer chemicals to treat the water.
