The splash pad is now officially on for the rest of the summer! We want to give our immense thanks to Steve Johnson for repairing the leak and in general, for all the hard work he has put in getting the fountain to work again these past few years.
In order to use the splash pad, simply place your hand on the center of the flower censor on the splash pad. The water will cycle for a few minutes and then shut off. Simply touch the sensor again to restart. Please note, the water will automatically shut off at 8pm daily.
Also, while using the park, please remind children to keep the sand in the sandbox. If too much sand gets onto the splash pad, this can ruin the fountain heads.
Thank you, and enjoy the water play and the park this summer!
