Reidsville Splashpad to open on Memorial Day Weekend

Updated: May 29

The City of Reidsville will be cutting the ribbon on its latest recreational facility at the start of Memorial Day Weekend.

 

The City, in conjunction with the Reidsville Chamber of Commerce, will officially open the new Splashpad at lower Jaycee Park, 2010 South Scales Street, during a 12 noon ribbon cutting on Friday, May 24.

 

“We have been able to utilize grant funding to create this water experience for our residents, both young and old,” said Haywood Cloud Jr., Assistant City Manager of Community Services. “We hope people will be able to enjoy the Splashpad during the hot days of summer.”

 

In 2020, the Reidsville City Council first expressed an interest in offering the amenity to its citizens. When American Rescue Plan funding became available, City staff began implementing the Council’s vision and fulfilling the governing board’s mandate to use the ARP funds for projects that all Reidsville residents could enjoy. Additional City funding was added to make the Splashpad a reality.

 

The Reidsville Splashpad includes several fun water features, among them the Scorpion, Spray Cannon, Turtle and a Super Splash (bucket drop). The features are sized for different ages to enjoy. Reidsville Public Works and Parks & Rec staff have been trained in the upkeep and maintenance of the facility.

 

Admission to the facility is free. Children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult. The facility also features a concession stand with snacks and drinks.

 

Hours of operation will vary. Mondays through Thursdays the Splashpad will be open 10 a.m.- 7:30 p.m. Every two hours the facility will be closed for a half hour from 12 noon-12:30 p.m., 2:30-3 p.m. and 5-5:30 p.m. This will allow staff time to clean the Splashpad fixtures and prepare for the next session. Friday through Sunday the facility will be open from 12:30-5 p.m. and be closed for cleaning from 2:30-3 p.m.

 

The Splashpad will also be available for exclusive rental during the weekend. Those hours will be 10 a.m.-12 noon and 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Sundays. Call the Reidsville Parks & Recreation at 336-349-1090 for pricing and more information.

 

Plans are for the Splashpad to be open from late May through Labor Day weekend.
