FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — With warmer-than-usual temperatures in the Energetic City, questions about when the Rotary Spray Park will be opening have started rolling in.

According to the City of Fort St. John, the weather must stay consistently warm for an extended period to turn the water on.

The city says the ground temperature under the spray park has only been two to three degrees Celsius this week, and nighttime temperatures drop to three to four degrees Celsius.

City staff say they can’t turn the water on until they’re confident the pipes won’t freeze. 

The spray park is usually scheduled to open on June 1st, though the city hopes they can turn the water on a bit sooner this summer.
