City Breaks Ground on Splash Pad and Playground Equipment

IMG-3268Yelm, WA — The City of Yelm broke ground to begin construction on the much anticipated City Park play area and splash pad which are scheduled to be complete by mid-June, just in time for the annual Prairie Days Festival.

The splash pad is designed to cover an estimated 1,780 square-feet, located within the Yelm City Park, adjacent to the Yelm Community Center. The splash pad will feature multiple water fountains, water rings, water cannons, and other features for children to recreate, and will use a recirculating water system to conserve water.

The updated playground equipment will replace the existing playground, and will expand to an estimated 6,700 square-feet. The new playground will have swings, slides, climbing features, bridges, a tree house, and will have ADA compliant access. A concrete pavilion will surround both the splash pad and playground equipment.

These improvements, along with many others over the last few years have made the park a destination in the heart of our community.
