Palm Coast – In July, the City of Palm Coast closed a portion of the James F. Holland Memorial Park Splash Pad due to safety concerns. Areas of the rubber pad surface began cracking and deteriorating which became a tripping hazard. As many features as possible have remained open as materials for repairs were on order. The City has been working diligently with the contractor to get the issues resolved, as the splash pad is new and still under warranty.
Beginning September 13, the hours of operation for the splash pad will change. The splash pad will be closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. On Wednesdays through Sundays, the splash pad will be operational from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Portions of the splash pad will continue to be blocked off where there is damage present.
The splash pad will close for the season on October 4, 2021. While the splash pad is closed for the season, all repairs will be completed. The repairs to the splash pad will be made during the closed season as the splash pad cannot be utilized while construction is in progress. The splash pad will re-open in early Spring 2022.
The City recognizes the inconvenience this causes to families, however, the City’s priority is to ensure safety and prevent injury to everyone at the splash pad.
