Make a splash in the ENMAX Water Park

The ENMAX Water Park has a new feature to help Red Deerians make a splash.

“We are excited to announce our newest feature, the dynamic Elevations Pool Play structure,” said Barb McKee, Collicutt Centre supervisor. “With enhanced play components, this new colourful feature replaces original equipment that was a favorite focal point in the ENMAX Water Park over the last decade.”

Geared towards young children and their parents, the new feature includes a double slide, climbing platform, spray elements, a water play table, deck geysers, waterfalls, tipping buckets and a generous wading area that encourages spontaneous family play.

Since its installation in September, the new equipment has proven to be a popular splash spot in the ENMAX Water Park for kids young and young at heart.

The feature not only has enhanced play components, but was selected because of improved ease for ongoing maintenance and repair.

As part of the City’s valued partnership with ENMAX, the company contributed to a Capital Reserve over the last 10 years.

These reserve dollars were earmarked to maintain infrastructure in the ENMAX Water Park.

“Thanks to ENMAX, we were able to replace equipment that had lost its functionality,” said McKee. “This financial support allows us to continue to provide fun, active and engaging quality of life opportunities for our community.”

Representatives from the Collicutt Centre and ENMAX will be gathering for the ribbon cutting ceremony Dec. 1 at 2:15 p.m.
