Splash Pad

Goodlettsville Parks and Rec is a recipient of a 2016 Local Parks and Recreation Fund grant for the purpose of developing a splash pad and renovating a restroom facility serving the splash pad and Peay Park.

What is the status?


Update April 4, 2018: We are still waiting on approvals for the site plan and restroom building that go along with the splash pad project.  Then, we have to bid out that work, so no work can begin on the splash pad until that part of the process is complete.  We have asked for an estimate on when our plans will be approved, but have not yet heard back from the grant administration agency that does the approvals.  At this point, the earliest any construction will begin is mid-May, but more likely June.  We are keeping our fingers crossed that we can have a late summer opening.

Update March 2, 2018: The Splash Pad equipment is ready to be shipped, but we are still on hold for approvals needed from the Health Department and the State.  The splash pad cannot be installed until the equipment room is built and those construction documents are also needing approvals before that portion of the project can go out to bid.  It is looking like installation won't being until at least mid-April. 

Right now, the designers are getting plans stamped by an engineer.  From there, the Health Department and the grant agency will review and approve the plans.  Once approval is received, the product ships and will be installed which takes about 6 weeks.

Will it be open this summer?


Update April 4, 2018:  Not looking good for opening this summer.  We remain hopeful that we can at least open at the end of the summer.

We are hopeful that the splash pad will be open this summer!  Once installed, staff will have to be trained on the operation.  We want to do everything we can to keep you safe.

What will it look like?
