The splash pad at Len Roberts Park has been shut down until further notice while the City repairs an apparent broken water pipe that feeds this popular spring and summer feature.
The issue was discovered yesterday afternoon and City parks staff is assessing the damage. The feature will remain closed until all necessary repairs are made. The City anticipates bringing the splash pad back online by May 1.
Last year, the splash pad use policy was changed from fee-based to free of charge and it has proved to be a popular park amenity. It was recently activated for 2019 on the first day of spring.
“We’ve seen much more use of the splash pad since making it free of charge,” says Laura Wilson, director of Leisure and Library Services. “It’s great to offer local youth and families a fun way to cool off and we’re working to bring this popular feature back online as fast as we can.”
