There's some bad news for those who were planning on attending the grand opening event for the Foothills Kinettes Water Tower Park in High River.

Due to inclement weather impeding some of the construction, the grand opening ceremony, originally planned for Saturday, September 22, has been postponed to next Spring.

The group still welcomes everyone to try out the newly re-designed park, which is set to open up next week.

Chairperson for the project Jenny Jones says they're awaiting one final piece of the puzzle, before construction is complete.

"There's still some things that need to be finished off with landscaping, it's still a big mud hole at the moment. The final phase of construction is the rubber surfacing, which we won't have completed for the weekend, but should be finished next week."
