White Bear First Nation Community Spray Park

White Bear First Nations is looking to create a publicly accessible all-ages spray park as a social gathering place and foundation for a community area. The project features all-ages water play equipment and will be fully wheelchair accessible, ensuring high-level accessibility throughout the park. The project will also install a modern water recirculating system, which treats and reuses the water that will go through the park. This will minimize the water requirements to run the park, ensuring that it is both ecologically and fiscally responsible without any loss of functionality. The spray park will be installed in a central location within the community as part of a larger revitalization project which will include supporting sidewalks, green space, and gathering areas.

Latest update

September 6, 2023 – Infrastructure Canada has determined that the proposed White Bear First Nation's Community Spray Park is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.

This determination was based on a consideration of the following factors:

  • impacts on rights of Indigenous peoples;
  • Indigenous knowledge;
  • community knowledge;
  • comments received from the public; and
  • technically and economically feasible mitigation measures.

Mitigation and monitoring measures taken into account for this determination included active and adaptive management measures that would be implemented for the protection of the local environment.  Based on the consideration of these measures, Infrastructure Canada is satisfied that the carrying out of the Project is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.

Therefore, Infrastructure Canada may carry out the project, exercise any power, perform any duty or function, or provide financial assistance to enable the project to be carried out in whole or in part.
