Council approved the design for an aqua splash pad to be built at the Kiwanis Park (Rio Den), unfortunately this build will take around two months, so hopefully the weather is still hot come September. This is another initiative to improve our parks and add to recreation that can be enjoyed by all ages in Elliot Lake.
