Spray Park Committee
What is a Spray Park? Think super sized, super cool sprinklers and you have wet fun for all ages and abilities. One of the greatest things about the spray park is there is no standing water so no lifeguards are required.
The Spray Park Committee is a subcommittee of the Community Development Committee. With a goal of raising $145,000 in funds to make the Dixon Spray Park a reality they are always looking for volunteers to help out in all sorts of ways.
Get involved with a fun and focused group that is looking to enhance our community. Committee meetings are the first Wednesday of every month, and lots of exciting events are planned for the upcoming year.
Tax-deductible donations for the Spray Park are gratefully accepted. Make cheques payable to the Town of Indian Head with 'Spray Park Donation' noted in the memo line. Please mail or deliver your donation to:
