Town of Marana splash pad opens

In anticipation of hotter weather just around the corner, Town of Marana has opened its popular splash pad to the public. Hours of operation are 8 A.M. - 7 P.M. daily.

Marana residents greeted the news with overwhelming enthusiasm when Marana Parks and Recreation announced the early opening on their Facebook page.

The splash pad, which is located at 12205 N. Tangerine Farms Road near the Gladden Farms community, measures 4,500 square feet. The pad has an agrarian theme with water features including a tractor, windmill, horses and crops. This year, more benches have been added for additional seating.

There is no admission fee and restrooms are on site.
