Côte des Neiges-N.D.G. Mayor Responds to Tour de l'Île Concerns
New waterplay area to be checked

Kids delighted as new waterplay area opens at Rembrandt Park

Due to the poor weather conditions we experienced in May and June, the beautiful new waterplay area in Rembrandt Park finally opened this weekend. Time was required for installation and painting. There is a large sprinkler in the shape of a flower that spins as it emits water and a number of other spots where water sprouts from.WaterplayA  Councillor Cohen greets Megan, Daniel and Juliana to the new waterplay area at Rembrandt Park.


Local residents, many of whom have young children or grandchildren, really wanted something like this at Rembrandt. The initial response was superb. I spent some time talking to parents and kids. It was a big thumbs up.

Five year old Daniel quickly figured out which buttons to push to get the water flowing. His mom,  Nathalie, sat on a picnic bench smiling. "He loves it," she said. Another mom soon arrived with her two little girls, aged four and five. The kids could not get sprayed on quick enough. I would like to thank the departments of Public Works and Parks and Recreation for making this a reality. I hope we have wonderful weather the rest of the summer so all can enjoy.
