The City operated a splashpad in Central Park from 2000 to 2006.  The City shut down the pad in 2006 due to a dilapidated filtration system and drought precautions. The City’s new conceptual plan addresses these issues by replacing the plumbing with a more modern and efficient system that significantly reduces the need for staff maintenance and the use of chemicals. In addition, the plan incorporates a way to recycle the used splashpad water as an irrigation source for the lawn and community garden. These water conservation efforts combined with the enhanced recreational opportunities could greatly benefit the community. Please see the link below to view the conceptual plan.
