The plumbing damage to the Splash Park was both extensive and expensive. Repairs would require removing concrete, repairing plumbing, replacing concrete, and resurfacing the concrete with the proper surface. Given the high cost and time to repair, along with availability of the new Splash Park at Union and Briargate Parkway, the Board has chosen to not return the PCVA Splash Park to service.
The City of Colorado Springs is pleased to say that the project is still on schedule to wrap up in mid-August.
The project will improve ride quality over the bridge, fix drainage issues and extend the service life of the bridge. The project has been coordinated with the 2C paving effort that will follow the completion of the bridge maintenance project.

Splash Park Update We are sorry to report that the Splash Park water feature remains closed. There is a water leak under the concrete. At this time we have hired a Leak Detect Company to check the entire system for water leaks and advise us of the locations where we have leaks.
Xeriscape Projects 2017 The old landscape and sprinkler systems have been removed from these areas. New ground cloth is in place and the new plant drip systems are being installed. Next will come the plants and finally the area will be covered with rock.
Xeriscape Projects 2016 As soon as we complete the 2017 Xeriscape projects, The landscapers will start removing the empty containers and replacing these areas with plants.
Native Grasses Our Native Grasses are doing well and will be cut later on this year after the plants go to seed.
