New North Valleys Water Splash Park Opens Saturday
Looking for somewhere fun to take your children?
We got a preview today of the new North Valleys Water Splash Park! A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held tomorrow, and then the park will officially open to the public at 11am to 5pm with free admission.
The 7,100 square-foot park includes more than 20 different water features and over 60 spray heads. It also has a new playground that is ADA accessible.
Free souvenir beach balls will be given out tomorrow while supplies last. It’s located at 8085 Silver Lake Road in Stead.
The park will only be open on the weekends until June 16th when it will be open daily. Admission will be $3 per person, per day. Ages 2 and under and seniors 62 and over are free.
The North Valleys Regional Park Water Play Splash Pad and Improvements project was identified as the top priority by residents of the community in 2011, and is consistent with the approved North Valleys Regional Park Master Plan. Stantec Consulting was awarded the bid for design and construction administration in April 2012. Stantec utilized Aquatic Design Group as their sub-contractor for the design of the actual water play park.
The Board of County Commissioners approved the park’s final design November 13, 2012 and Pace Construction was awarded the bid for construction of the facility February 12, 2013. The design and construction of the park was supported by $3.2 million in funds from the sale of 280 acre-feet of Sierra Sage Golf Course groundwater rights, and construction of the park began in March 2013.
