City splash pads can’t open until Health Unit inspection

(Barrie, ON) The City of Barrie splash pads are unable to open this weekend as originally planned.

In order to ensure compliance with the requirements and guidelines for operating splash pads, the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit is now required to inspect the splash pads prior to opening. Unfortunately, the Health Unit currently has a backlog of inspections and is unable to inspect the City's splash pads before this weekend.

The City will provide an update on the opening of splash pads once the health unit provides inspection.
