For those of you that haven't discovered the new…or new last year…wading pool at Wabun Picnic Area, you are in for a treat. The park is a little hidden away. If you aren't on your way to the vetrans home, you probably wouldn't even notice it exists. Perhaps you've noticed folks playing frisbee golf as you head accross the Ford Bridge? Well just beyond them is the park. There are two playgrounds, numberous pavillions, restrooms, and one great wading pool.
The pool features a zero-entrance beach like boarder that allows for the smallest of toddlers to experiment with splashing in the water. The center of the pool has a large structure pumping out water falls, and there are two other areas with water jetting up several feet in the air. Word is that Hiawatha's wading pool is going under a similar transformation.
