GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. The downtown splashpad is officially closed for public use and water fun traffic moves to an already crowded community attraction.
Grand Junction Parks and Rec officials have sectioned off the splashpad at the Lincoln Park Moyer pool and opened it for public use.
You can enter the splashpad area of the pool grounds free of charge and from a newly created entrance.
The move from downtown has many worried about the crowds they'll have to deal with at the pool as the weather gets warmer.
“We've had a mixed bag of feedback from the community, certainly people are missing the amenity downtown, and they like that, but we have received a lot of positive feedback as well,” says Rob Schoeber of Grand Junction Parks and Rec.
The splashpad at Lincoln Park provides families with a much cleaner and safer alternative for summer fun.
There are specified lifeguards to keep kids safe in the sectioned off area and to keep paying pool customers and passholders separate from from splashpad visitors.
