The spray pad is an accessible facility that gives visitors of all abilities an opportunity to interact with the water, which is treated in a closed, chlorinated system similar to those used for swimming pools. The spray pad uses a closed system of about 3,500 gallons that recycles water; new water is only added to replenish water lost to evaporation. The spray pad uses multiple filter systems including a basket filter, sand filter, and UV filter.
