PRESS RELEASE: Grand Opening for New Splashpad in Marana


MARANA – Marana Parks and Recreation Department will hold a grand opening ceremony on Thursday, August 30 at 9:00 A.M. to commemorate the opening of the new splash pad at Crossroads at Silverbell District Park located at 7548 N. Silverbell Road.

The 2,400 square foot splash pad is the latest amenity at the park and will be located near the playground and basketball courts.

“We are very excited to give the residents of Marana another destination attraction,” said Marana Parks and Recreation Deputy Director D. Tyrell McGirt. “Splash pads allow everyone to have an interactive, safe, and fun aquatic experience.”

The grand opening ceremony will be the public’s first opportunity to experience the splash pad, and will be held prior to Labor Day weekend. The ceremony will include a short ribbon cutting ceremony, refreshments, and an opportunity to be the first to try out the many amenities.

The splash pad features a series of floor geysers, floor lighting, colorful shade sails, and seating integrated within the pad outside of the water’s reach.

The new splash pad will fit in nicely with the other amenities at the park which include a dog park, athletic fields, a playground, basketball courts, and walking paths with access to the shared use path.

“Parks and park amenities bring people together and build community. The Crossroads at Silverbell District Park splash pad will be another public gathering spot where people can recreate and get to know their neighbors.” said McGirt.
