  • Arkinstall Splash Pad

    Created: Thursday, January 10, 2019

    Date: Tuesday, January 22, 2019
    Location: Municipal Offices (395 Mulock Drive), Council Chambers
    Time: 6 to 8p.m.

    The Town of Newmarket is holding a Public Information Centre (PIC) for a proposed splash pad in Dr. Margaret Arkinstall Park, located in Ward 6 of the Town. The splash pad will serve residents of Newmarket, especially those of the south west quadrant. The PIC format will be ‘Open House’ and you are invited to drop in anytime between 6 and 8 p.m.  The proposed work includes the following:

    Accessible Splash Pad:
    Installation of a splash pad
    Shade structure(s)
    Seating areas
    Site furniture
    Trees, shrubs, and perennial plantings
    Accessible washrooms
    Water fountain/bottle fill-up station
    Storage room
    Accessible wayfinding

    Construction of the splash pad is scheduled to commence in August 2019, with an estimated opening in the early summer of 2020. This project is subject to the availability of sufficient funds. Scheduling is dependent on successful tendering and contract award processes and weather conditions during construction.

    Project drawings will be on display at the PIC. Representatives of the Town’s Engineering Services department will be available to answer questions and provide additional information. Should you be unable to attend the PIC, or if you have any questions regarding this project, please contact:
