A new water fountain for dog owners and their furry friends has been installed in South Bear Creek Dog Park. The feature, which includes two fountains at heights for both humans and their canines, was installed in a partnership with Aquatera Utilities, and the City of Grande Prairie.
Aquatera CEO Vaughn Bend says they believe a thriving community is one that values the well-being of those who live in it, and he hopes the fountain will be a significant stride towards creating a more hydrated and health-conscious Grande Prairie.
The installation of the drinking water fountain near South Bear Creek Park is a step forward in fostering a culture of wellness and unity within our community,” Vaughn adds.
Grande Prairie Mayor Jackie Clayton says Aquatera covered the costs of purchasing and installing the fountain, and the city has agreed to keep it maintained.
“The City is proud to be part of this innovative partnership to better serve our residents. We’re excited to have the new drinking water fountain installed as a demonstration of council’s
commitment of promoting an active lifestyle, which was made possible through prioritizing engaging relationships with our community partners,” she adds.
The fountain will be open during the spring and summer months and will remain available for use from approximately May 15th to October 15th starting in 2024.
