There is still a few weeks left to enjoy the nice warm weather before kids go back to school. So you might want to go out to the spray parks in Estevan, as they seem to have been a big hit this summer. 

"No major issues with any complaints with dogs or anything like that," explained Estevan's Parks and Facilities Manager, Rod March. "People are being really respectful of the rules, we're really grateful that there are no major issues."

He added that they hope to keep the spray parks open until September 15th, weather permitting.

"Then we have to start our irrigation shut down process and they are all tied together so at that point we're going to have to start shutting them down."

"We're also doing construction at Royal Heights so I need enough time to get that done." 

As one last hurrah, the City of Estevan will be hosting a "World Traveller" carnival at Royal Heights Veterans Memorial Park this afternoon, starting at 2 pm. 

"It's kind of a year-end thing with the play parks program where we will have a slip and slide all that sort of thing going on there. It's a big event put on by the play parks program, we're inviting everyone, there'll be some food trucks and ice cream trucks. There's no charge to get in."

Following last year's popular slide, March shared that he changed a few things around to accommodate two giant slides.
