Having made the commitment of Rotary and raised half the funding for the $600,000 project from generous sponsors and donors, the Rotary Club of Ladner, in partnership with the Corporation of Delta, looks forward to construction of the Ladner Rotary Splash Park, scheduled for completion by May 2018 in time for the summer season.
