The Community Center splash pad, 211 N. Ben Wilson St., is open once again, and Victoria’s youngest residents are invited to come splash around in the fountains and get doused by the giant baseball bucket.

“We know that splash pads are an important resource for residents and their families, which is why we do everything we can to keep them open and only close due to safety issues,” said Parks & Recreation Director Jason Alfaro. “We are excited to be able to invite residents back to the Community Center splash pad to have fun while staying cool.”

The Lone Tree Creek splash pad, 4009 E. Airline Road, is also open.

Victoria’s splash pads are activated by a push-button system that turns off when the splash pad is not in use. If the water is not running, residents should press the activator button.

The button for the Lone Tree Creek splash pad is located near the gate. The Community Center splash pad has two buttons: one near the gate and one on the other side of the splash pad.
