The splash pad at the Arthur A. Fournier Sr. Memorial Park, 525 Litchfield St., is open from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. from about June to September (weather permitting). The splash pad opens on Memorial Day weekend and closes on Labor Day.
To start the water cycle, there is a child-height orange button on the pavilion side of the splash pad. The cycle runs for about 12-14 minutes and the button must be pressed again to restart it.
We are monitoring the splash pad to ensure social distancing and for contact tracing.
We're not able to remove the picnic tables at this time. They are use-at-your-own-risk. Food particles and droplets from an infected person can spread the virus onto the table surface and benches, where it can live for up to 3 days. If you're going to use the picnic tables, we highly recommend bringing disinfectant wipes with you to clean the area before and after use.
