his is the Gore Bay Splash Pad. The Espanola committee checked out this site as well as the pad located on Low Island in Little Current, Both are considered too small for Espanola's needs.

Espanola council has deferred approving construction of a splash pad until a cost estimate including possible grant availability can be presented to them for consideration.
The Recreation and Culture Advisory Committee’s second recommendation that the splash pad be located at Sherwood Park was accepted.
A 2,500 to 3,000-square foot splash pad that will accommodate 25 to 30 children at any given time will be the focus of the final design stage, as well as the cost of amenities, hard services and construction preparation.
