CENTRAL VALLEY — More than five years in the making, the splash pad in Central Valley is now open for business.

A soft opening for the 1,000 square foot Central Splash took place July 4, according to Becky Bastian, the town councilwoman who spearheaded the more than $100,000 project.

Hours of operation for the facility, which is now open to the public free of charge, are Monday through Friday, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; and Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The splash pad, which is closed on Sundays, may also be reserved Saturdays, from 5 to 8 p.m., at a cost of $30.

There is no lifeguard on duty at any time. Youths 10 and younger must have adult supervision at all times.

Other rules include wearing appropriate swimwear, and the required use of age appropriate swim diapers.

Prohibited items include pets, glass, bottles, rocks, sand, mud, roller skates, skateboards, and other foreign objects.

Funding for the project was made possible through community fundraisers and a grant from the Utah Community Permanent Impact Fund Board.

The splash pad is located at the community center, 50 West Center Street in Central Valley.
