Splash pad coming to Laurel Park this Summer

by Felicia Rogers on

Will be located on the playground side of Laurel Park near Robinson Ave

Laurel Park will soon be home to a 5,485 square foot splash pad. The splash pad will have 14 above ground features and 25 ground sprays. It will include age-based play areas with age appropriate play products.

The toddler bay will contain gentle jet streams, 3 interactive helios, and an aqua dome. The family bay will contain a water tunnel, 2 spray misting loops, and the new helio number 5 with a self-spinning orb and tumble buckets. The action bay will contain the giant super splash, a 12 jet cylinder spray, 2 bamboo rings, 2 luna water cannons, and a helio 36.

The splash pad will be located on the playground side of Laurel Park near Robinson Ave. It will have an ADA entrance sidewalk, 4 shade structures, 4 picnic tables, 8 park benches and 4 trash receptacles.

The City of Conway plans to extend the parking area and add two larger pavilions.

The addition of the splash pad was made possible by a 50/50 grant that the city received in the amount of $165,000 from the Arkansas Department of Parks & Tourism. The total cost of this project will be $330,000.
