The City of Fayetteville Parks and Recreation Department will hold a grand opening ceremony today (May 15) at 5 p.m. to celebrate the opening of Fayetteville’s first splash pad.
This new facility and the festivities will be located in Walker Park at 1087 S. Block Avenue in South Fayetteville.
The 3,065 square-foot splash pad is the newest amenity added to Walker Community Park and is located on the north end near the playground, pavilion and skatepark.
The new splash pad will fit nicely with other amenities at the park which include a baseball complex, skatepark, playgrounds, basketball and tennis courts, as well as access to the Razorback Regional Greenway Trail.
Features of the new facility include floor geysers, colorful and interactive above-ground spray features, and a large dump bucket sure to create endless excitement. Located around the splash pad are shade structures and seating as well. The splash pad will be open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily, until the third Sunday in September.
