The City of Fort Saskatchewan has managed to drain its flooded playgrounds.
 
It took crews roughly a week to pump water from 14 playgrounds in the Fort, but everything was back to normal by Tuesday (Apr.24).
 
"We finished pumping them all out and now the rest of the water is just draining naturally. The ones I’ve personally seen are looking really good now," said the city's parks services manager Jean Dabels.
 
Playgrounds in the lower lying areas were worse than the rest.
 
The process cost roughly $1500 and the city has a total of 30 playgrounds.
