Splash Pad Renovations

On July 12, 2022 Director of Neighborhood Services Marc Marchand gave an update to City Council regarding the splash pad and ongoing need for repairs. View the meeting (starting at see 58:15). In short, our splash pad is more than 12 years old and has been retrofitted over the years with new parts and pumps to improve its water conservation, chemical safety, and efficiency. But the equipment overall is antiquated. For example, most splash pads constructed today have at least a 4,000-gallon tank, whereas ours is only 1,000 gallons. 

Currently, the demand for new parts surpasses supply. It has been increasingly difficult to find the parts needed to make continuous repairs to the splash pad to maintain its safety. Thus we will close for the season and use this time to assess what repairs or renovations are needed to improve the splash pad for next season.  

Thank you for your understanding as we work on a solution that will be great for our kids and continue to provide a safe environment for them to play.
