 Pool and Splash Pad

 

The Town's Splash Pad at Toddy Jones Park is open daily from 12:30 pm - 7:30 pm until August 31st.  With weather permitting, this closing date could be extended.  In order to provide a safe and enjoyable experience at the splash pad during the COVID-19 pandemic, the town is implementing several health and safety protocols specific to the use of the splash pad.

  • only 9 people from the same social bubble are permitted to use the splash pad at one time
  • each use is timed to shut off after 10 minutes.  At that point, the user(s) must exit the splash pad area.
  • the perimeter of the splash pad is fenced so that there is only one entrance/exit point
  • staff will monitor and limit access to only one social bubble at a time
  • staff will disinfect all pad equipment after every use
  • users must sign up with the attending staff for use of the pad
  • users can only sign up for 1 time slot at a time, but once their use has ended they can sign up again, time permitting.
  • hand sanitizer must be used before entering the pad.

 

Due to COVID-19, the LaSalle Outdoor Pool is closed for the summer.  Therefore, there will be no Amherstburg Shark Swim team this year.
