Polson Park playground closed

Playground and spray park shut down until Friday because of work

Vernon’s Polson Park playground and spray park are closed until Friday.

They are closed to allow for repair work.

“There has been standing water in Polson Park for several weeks due to the high water table and heavy rain,” said Tannis Neson, with the Regional District of North Okanagan.

“However an irrigation leak is now suspected to be contributing to the volume of water. The water is being pumped out and crews will be looking to repair the issue by Friday.”

Crews are also working on final improvements to the rubber surface that was installed at the spray park this year.
