Comox splash park opens early

Turn on the taps!

Due to the great weather in the forecast, the Town of Comox has opened the Marina Park Splash Pad a week earlier than initially planned. The Splash Pad is now officially open for the season.

“It’s a great opportunity for kids and families to get outdoors and play in the town’s newly installed Splash Pad,” said Al Fraser Park Superintendent.

Come on down to Marina Park and play… and don’t forget the sunscreen
