The City of Brooks officially opened the new Duke of Sutherland Water Park in June 2011.
The new park is free for all users and has a brand new design and all new equipment. There are new spray heads, new obstacles, a water gun section, a slide, and other fun sprayers for children of all ages.
Funding for the project came from a partnership between the City, the County of Newell and the Federal Government (through the stimulus funding RinC Grant).
The park is open from May to September and the water will run automatically if the outdoor temperature is 18 Celsius (°C) and above.
