Henderson Park and Legacy Park Irrigation

​Due to irrigation issues, park users will see longer watering periods at both Henderson Park and Legacy Park.

Henderson Park will have a watering period of 14-15 hours per day and Legacy Park will have a watering period of 18-24 hours.

Due to an issue with the Henderson irrigation pump house located by the pavilion, there is not enough volume of water coming in from the lake in the standard time frame to meet the irrigation requirements.

Starting this morning at 8 a.m., an investigation into a suspected blockage will begin. Signs and barricades will be used to help guide the public around the equipment and vehicles. Park users can expect periods of increased noise throughout the day as various pieces of equipment are used.

This irrigation pump house intake was not included in the recent irrigation renewal project.

The investigative work is anticipated to take one day, weather permitting.

Legacy Park has two irrigation pumps in the pump house, which are not functioning. A temporary pump is operating outside of the pump house but the reduced capacity is resulting in longer watering times. A full irrigation cycle in Legacy Park is now taking up to three times longer than normal, resulting in a watering window of 18 plus hours.

City of Lethbridge Park & Cemeteries irrigation department will focus on watering less used areas during peak park hours.

The Parks & Cemeteries department appreciate the patience of park visitors as they work through the irrigation setbacks.
