Lehi City Mayor Bert Wilson hosted the grand opening of the new splash pad at Ivory Ridge Park (3200 N. 560 W) on Saturday, July 9. 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 included a message from Mayor Wilson, a countdown start to the start of the splash pad, refreshments, and prizes. The splash pad is operational Monday-Saturday from 10 a.m.-8 p.m. through summer months.
According to Steve Marchbanks, Parks and Facilities Manager, Lehi residents have been eager for a splash pad in 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.”
The splash pad has been operational for the last few weeks while the system was 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. To learn more about Ivory Ridge and other parks in Lehi City go to http://www.lehi-ut.gov/recreation/parks.
