The Hiawatha Parks and Recreation Department has begun to open splash pads in Tucker and Guthridge Park. Both splash pads are anticipated to be open and working by Friday, June 19. The sensors on the fire hydrants, along with the benches will be sanitized daily. All other play pieces on the splash pads will not be disinfected, and as a reminder, the water is not chlorinated. Both pads will be power washed each morning before opening. Patrons are asked to use at their own discretion. Splash pads will operate 10:00 a.m. each day, and turn off at 8:00 p.m.. This will allow staff to clean accordingly.
Please remember to follow health guidelines that are in place:
Maintain social distancing standards of a minimum of six feet between users.
If you have been sick in the last two weeks or have a cough, fever or other flu-like symptoms, stay home for your health and the safety of others.
Individuals 60 years of age and older, or those with underlying conditions, should stay at home to avoid potential exposures.
