Located on the shore of the Jacques-Cartier River, the city of Sainte-Catherine-de-la-Jacques-Cartier has seen incredible demographic growth, almost doubling in the last 30 years. Feeling like they were falling short of their full potential, the city had a desire to expand the recreational possibilities in Grand-Héron Park. Answering the residents’ request for an aquatic play facility, the city decided to convert a grassy area of the park into a Splashpad®. Although the City was presented with several challenges like high soil moisture and a very tight installation timeline, the eco-friendly Splashpad was installed successfully with the City’s requirements.
