Yesterday was a beautiful day for the official opening of the redeveloped Deer Valley Park with new splash pad! Expanding and improving the City's parks with splash pad was an initiative I've been keen about since my 2018 election campaign when I met with senior staff and showed them picture comparisons of Oshawa's vs. its neighbour municipality splash pads. Happy to say the City has advanced considerably on this issue in the past 5 years!! It is especially good to see the new tables with seating and shade covers! I expect more of them to be added especially to other parks in Ward 1 that are in serious need of seating and shade! Great enjoyable new park place to visit, located 2nd street south of Taunton west side of Thornton Rd.
