The Rotary Spray park regains its infamous fountain.

It was announced that earlier this summer the fountain in the Rotary Park near the World's Largest Dinosaur would be without a fountain. The fountain, a local staple for those who live in the valley and a popular resting place for families from all over the world, is now back up and running.

"They finished the work over the weekend and it all looks good at the moment," explains the Town of Drumheller's Communications Officer, Julia Fielding.

The fountain has been re-piped and is now in the process of being flushed and tested to inspect if water levels match safety protocols in line with Alberta Health.

"Currently, the water is in there but they've had to send it for testing," said Fielding. "When they (Alberta Health) give us the go ahead, we will open it to the public."

The Rotary Park fountain will be active for the rest of the summer season and it would seem just in time for time to escape the remainder of this summer heat.

"It makes a huge difference, right!" concluded Fielding. "It's wonderful down there."
