The redevelopment of this beautiful amenity will ensure that it remains an attraction and a source of smiles for years to come.”

Two young entrepreneurs have donated part of their profits from a summer lemonade stand to the Parksville Splash Park. Cooper Lotzien and Kai Carleton, both avid users of the Splash Park themselves, made a donation of $150 – 10% of their profits – in honour of Canada’s 150th birthday. Thanks boys for your hard work and your wonderful community spirit. You exemplify our fundraising theme – it’s all about the kids!
