I was just commenting to a friend the other day that it was a shame how early the pools and splash pads close here in the city. The day after Labour Day all the outdoor pools close for the season. I’m sure one of the reasons has to do with the fact that most of their staff consist of students who have to go back to school.
Well colour me surprised today when I found out that the splash pad at Marie Curtis Park still has its water feature working. Just hit the button and all the fountains and water sprayers start to flow. What a great find, especially on a warm day like today.

Today we experienced a nice warm summer day; the last one of the season. Normally this time of year the average temperature is about 20 degrees celsius but we hit 23 and people definitely took advantage of it.
When I arrived at the park school had just dismissed its students and I noticed several children were in the playground and splash pad. Cyclists, senior citizens and dog walkers were also enjoying this great weather.
Today was a very productive day for my blog. I took a trip over to Marie Curtis Park and found subjects for three posts today. I’m always on the hunt for public art and murals. I hit the jackpot today.
