The Town of Kingsville is pleased to announce the grand opening of the Lakeside Park splash pad on Friday, May 27, 2022, at 11:00 am. The new splash pad is in the upper bowl of Lakeside Park, 315 Queen Street, near the new outdoor washrooms with change-rooms. The splash pad features 20 spray elements and 14 water play elements.

"We are excited to formally open the splash pad in this location and bring this new outdoor recreation offering to kids and families in our community," said Kingsville Mayor Nelson Santos. "The weather is warming up, and this splash pad will provide a convenient location for kids to come out, cool off, and of course, have some fun."

This is Kingsville's second splash pad location; the first is at Ridgeview Park in Cottam, 124 Fox Street.

"The Town is grateful for the support of various sponsors who helped bring the Lakeside splash pad to fruition," continued Santos.

The Optimist Club contributed $10,000 toward the project. The Rotary Club of Kingsville Southshore donated a water refill station, and TCI Titan Contracting Inc. donated the custom sign.

The splash pad opens to the public following the grand opening celebration at 11:00 am on Friday, May 27, 2022. Regular hours of operation resume following the grand opening: 9 am – 9 pm, seven days a week. All are welcome.
