Ontario splash pad reopens Friday

The Ontario Splash Pad will open Friday for its second summer, under new management and a $1 entrance fee.

The Ontario Recreation District will open the pad from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., and is installing the fee to make the pad safer and longer-lasting. The pad is at Lions Park in Ontario.

To prevent spread of COVID-19, 10 district workers will clean every surface that people touch, from counters to restrooms, three times a day. The workers will also enforce social distancing and cleanliness rules on a three-strikes policy, and process fee payments. Attendance will be limited to 110 people, although the district doesn’t expect it to reach that amount, Andrew Maeda, district executive director said.

The fee will be charged for those six years old and older, including parents. The district is offering . . .
