The Kenora Rotary Club has released the final design of the future Rotary Splash Park. Rotary Club President Deb LeMaistre hopes that the park will be open next summer, when Rotarians celebrate their centennial anniversary.
After a tender was received, the total cost for the project is now estimated at over $530,000. To date, Rotarians have raised over $500,000 for the project.
The splash park was originally going to be built closer to the Norman Park Beach, but the city said that the water and sewer lines would not be able to accommodate the park. Instead, the park is now set to be built on the old Norman hockey rink, with the extended water lines from Minnesota Street.
On Monday, the Rotary Club and their partners - the City of Kenora, Northwestern Health Unit, Association for Community Living and the Kenora and Lake of the Woods Community Regional Foundation – will be hosting a Ground Breaking Ceremony between 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. on Monday at Norman Park. The ceremony and barbecue are to celebrate the start of construction on the splash park.
