Lehi City, Utah | July 7, 2016 — Lehi City Mayor Bert Wilson will host the grand opening of the new splash pad at Ivory Ridge Park (3200 N. 560 W) on Saturday, July 9, beginning at 10 a.m. This is Lehi City’s first splash pad and is part of the 10 acre park that also features two play areas, basketball courts, pavilions, walking paths, and open space.
The grand opening celebration will include a message from Mayor Wilson, a countdown start to the start of the splash pad, refreshments, and prizes. The public is invited to attend.
The splash pad will be operational Monday- Saturday from 10 a.m.-8 p.m. The splash pads allows kids to play in several different types of water features including the river, three liquid arches and two liquid jails.
According to Steve Marchbanks, Parks and Facilities Manager, Lehi residents have been eager for a splash pad to come to Lehi. “We have had a lot of interest in bringing a splash pad to our city,” Marchbanks said. “Many of our residents have been anxiously watching the construction progress and are excited to finally have it open.”
While the splash pad has not officially opened, it has been operational for the last week while the system is fine-tuned and tested. The Parks Division has been adjusting features to ensure efficient use of the water system and testing chlorine levels to make sure the pad operates under safe conditions.
Currently, the pavilions at Ivory Ridge Park are not available for reservation.
