Blenheim kids will finally have a splash pad when Talbot Trail Place opens this summer.

Jack Rigby is the chair of the park’s finance committee with Blenheim Rotary. He says it’s going to be a race to open as soon as possible.

“There’s going to be a lot of action over the next few months. We’ve got park benches ordered, a company is coming in to build a fountain, the trees are ordered, landscaping to go in,” says Rigby. “It’s just a matter of when we’re ready, we’ll have it going.”

Rigby says the cold, wet spring has caused some delays, adding there is no firm date for opening but the splash pad will be open for the hot weather.
