With sunshine and heat waves creeping into the forecast, London’s spray pads are set to make their summer debut ahead of Victoria Day long weekend.
The city’s 14 spray pad locations will officially open for the 2016 season Saturday morning.
“They’re all free and they’re operational whenever you want to go there between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m., so it’s a great opportunity for families to get out and get cooled off,” said Supervisor of Aquatics Lisa Brandie.
Spray pads will be in operation through the summer until September 5th.
London’s two cooling misters, at the North London Athletic Fields and Springbank Gardens, have also been turned on for the season.
Meanwhile, London’s ban on overnight parking will also be lifted this weekend.
Starting Friday, motorists will be allowed to leave their vehicles on the street between 3 a.m. and 5 a.m until Labour Day, September 5th.
Parking in front of fire hydrants, on boulevards, or front lawns is still banned during the summer. Vehicles must also not park on city streets for more than a 12-hour period.
