It started with a cheer and ended with eight teams attaching eight murals to the fencing around the Family Aquatic Complex in downtown Windsor on Wednesday, July 25.

Celebrating summer and youthful dreams for fun in the new competitive pool and water park, the Parks and Recreation campers and swimmers arrived at the construction site for an update on the project and a touch up to the fence.

The murals created by Parks and Recreation day camps reflect what young people hope to do in the new facility.

Councillor Drew Dilkens, Chair of the Steering Committee, welcomed about 30 campers and got a demonstration of what they hope to enjoy in the new pool when campers performed an impromptu sidewalk surfing show.

Don Sadler, Project Manager, confirmed that the project is on time and on budget, with part of the steel framing being installed this week.

Cathy Masterson, Manager of Cultural Affairs, introduced the public art mural component and invited other day camps and organizations in the community to get involved by designing their own mural. The City of Windsor will provide the plastic board for the art, but each group will provide creativity, brushes and water resistant paint for the artists. All murals must expand on the theme of what youth hope to enjoy in the new aquatic facility and reflect cultural sensitivity and good taste. For more information, call 311.

The City of Windsor will open the competitive section of the aquatic complex for the International Children's Games in August 2013.
