The project is estimated at a total cost of $2.1 million.

“BHP is thrilled to be in a position to provide this contribution to the Lanigan Waterpark,” said Ken Smith, BHP’s potash corporate affairs manager, in a media release. “It is our hope that facilities such as this will continue to enhance the lives of residents and be a regional attraction for the Town of Lanigan.”

Fundraising towards a new pool have been underway since 2014. The new site is planned to feature an Olympic pool of 4,000 square feet, a 148-foot water slide, a vortex pool for exercise, a splash park, and a beach-style entrance into the pool to help families and those with mobility issues.
