UPDATE (JUNE 11): In an update to the Stittsville Village Association, Shad Qadri said that the splash pad will be operational by end of August, 2015.
Shad Qadri announced plans to build a new splash pad in Jackson Trails this summer. Here’s a note from his weekly email newsletter to residents:
“Listening to community requests I have been able to receive support from the City for plans this summer to see a new Splash Pad opened in our community in Pioneer Plains Park in Jackson Trails. The City will be completing the tender process this month and construction is scheduled for completion as early as the end of June. The feature will be a Hydraulic Splash Pad with 6 Spray Features and it will be the first in the City to have a solar powered diverter system to manage the water discharged to the City’s sewer system. This new feature in Pioneer Plains Park will be the third Splash Pad in Stittsville and I will be exploring options to bring more splash pads to other areas of the Stittsville community. “
Splash pads in (or very close) to Stittsville include Bandmaster Park (230 Mistral Way), Upcountry Park (310 Upcountry), and Walter Baker Park (100 Walter Baker off Terry Fox). A full list of the city’s splash pads can be found here.
