The Town of Okotoks has made some changes at the spray park after a toddler suffered burns to the bottoms of his feet when stepping on a hot metal plate in July.

Carla Trigiani, Communications Specialist for the Town of Okotoks, says a number of different solutions were tried after this occurrence.

"They closed the park and that area, and they tried about three different types of solutions," she said.

The metal plates have now been covered with a truck bed liner type paint, with white paint underneath and there have been no further incidents since this solution was put in place.

Trigiani says this is very likely the permanent solution, however, they will be conducting more testing once the season is over.
