A Welland Councillor would like to see an inflatable waterpark in the Rose City.

John Chicchio believes it's important to have a safe place to swim in the canal, so he's planning on pitching the idea to council in the future.

He advocated for a beach space a few years ago, but council rejected the proposal.

The canal spans about 11 kilometres through the City.

Niagara is already home to one inflatable water park, Pirate Ship Cove in Jordan Station.
