CANON CITY — Using the splash pad at Centennial Park in Canon City is going to look different this summer.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the city is struggling to open the splash pad.

Some ideas include fencing off the splash pad and a reservation system that would only allow 20 to 25 kids on the pad at a time.

Proposals will be presented to Fremont County Health soon.

Another issue the city is facing is having enough staff to monitor the splash pad.

Due to COVID-19, the city had to cut its budget and seasonal staff have not yet been hired.
