Water Spraygrounds

One of the strategies identified under the City Council's Strategic Focus Area for Healthy Environment is to explore options for water spray parks. This project would provide for the installation of water spraygrounds at existing parks in the city. Installation at each site would include:

  • Filters
  • Pumps
  • Seating
  • Spray/play equipment
  • Surfacing

Locations

Water spraygrounds are an innovative solution to providing aquatic-style fun for people of all ages that requires no operational staffing. This project would construct eight spraygrounds in the following locations:

  • Easton, Southeast Ward
  • Griffith, South Ward
  • Hathaway, West Ward
  • Little Creek, Southwest Ward
  • Miller Park Renovations/Redevelopment
  • Oak Summit, Northeast Ward
  • Old Town, Northwest Ward
  • Piney Grove, North Ward
  • Sedge Garden, East Ward

Improvements

This project would provide for the redevelopment and upgrade of Miller Park to better serve area residents. Improvements would include, but are not limited to:

  • Bridge replacements
  • Correction of:
    • Drainage
    • Erosion
    • Flooding problems
  • Installation of benches
  • New/replacement picnic shelters
  • Path improvements
  • Utility improvements
