TUALATIN, Oregon – The iconic Tualatin Commons Splash Pad is getting an upgrade. Construction is expected to start on March 15 and will wrap up this summer. The splash pad is a key feature of the Tualatin Commons outdoor public plaza set in the heart of downtown, and is a popular community gathering place.

The renovations include new spray features, an updated textured and colored concrete surface, and recirculating system. The recirculating system includes new pumps and filters that will protect the water quality. Spray features were chosen by the community at one of Tualatin's newest events: ¡Viva Tualatin!

Since opening in 1994, the splash pad has provided a unique and refreshing opportunity for physical activity. Being the only splash pad in the city, it has served countless community members over the years. Children dance and splash playfully while parents watch or wade in this inclusive area. However, due to its age, this iconic feature is due for an update that will ease maintenance issues and address safety concerns.

This exciting and much needed update has been made possible thanks to grant funding from the State of Oregon's Parks and Recreation Department's Local Government Grant Program and matching funds from the City.
