Twin Forks Splash Pad

Thank you to everyone who helped us make the splash pad at Twin Forks happen! Our splash pad opened end of July 2020, and we'll be holder our grand opening in spring 2021, Covid situation permitting!

We're still accepting donations for additional seating and shade options for the splash pad.

NEWS AND EVENTS

#engagedward8 #funward8

Five lucky families won a $20 gift certificate from Great Lakes Pizza in our draw to celebrate the holiday season this year! They submitted photos of their houses decorated for the holidays and we saw some great photos! Watch for next year's contest starting in December and more opportunities to engage with your community coming soon!

Thanks to all of the City of Greater Sudbury guests who presented a great overview of the 2021 budget on December 20, 2020: Mayor Brian Bigger, CAO Ed Archer, Councillor Al Sizer, Manager of Financial Planning & Budgeting Steve Facey, and Communications and Engagement Advisor Shannon Dowling.

Also thanks to all of the community members who asked and sent in questions for the Q&A.

The Zoom event is up on the new Greater Sudbury Community Action Networks YouTube channel:

You can still ask a question about the budget by visiting https://overtoyou.greatersudbury.ca/budget-2021 or sending your input to [email protected]. A virtual Budget Information Session will also be held on February 10 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. to learn more and ask questions about the proposed 2021 Budget. Those planning on attending are encouraged to share their questions in advance of the event, by posting in the "Ask a Question" section on Over To You. Budget-related questions will be addressed in the time allotted. Those in attendance will be able to post questions live, during the event. The link to the session will be shared on the OTY budget page and on the City's social media pages the day of the session.
