Located in Hessel Park this water feature is in operation between Memorial Day and Labor Day, during the hours of 11 a.m.-3 p.m. & 5 p.m.-7 p.m. (Directions)
This playground was made possible through the fund-raising efforts of the local Ambucs chapter. Activated with the touch of a button, the Waterplay area comes alive with features such as ground sprays, seal, porpoise, and a spiral.
Update: Hessel Park Construction has begun, and is divided into two phases.
Phase 1—completion goal by late fall 2016 – COMPLETE
This phase consisted of constructing the new playground just south of the existing playground and splash pad.
Phase 2—completion goal by winter 2017. Construction set to begin in fall 2017
This phase will consist of constructing a new splash pad where the current playground and splash pad are located. The goal of the new splash pad is to be compatible with the recently created Douglass Park Splash Pad. This way features and functionality can be interchanged seasonally keeping the experience fresh and new for the kids.
