“That area that’s being taken down almost to surface level will now become additional space within the splash playground. There won’t be any lost space is will just have some different functionality to it,” Rafferty said.
PHOENIX — Tempe Beach Park’s Splash Playground is receiving $200,000 in renovations in time for the 2016 season.
Most of the renovations will not be visible, such as improvements to the playground’s recirculated water system, according to the East Valley Tribune.
The system keeps the clean, recirculated water flowing through the playground according to the City of Tempe website.
Above ground, the playground’s surface and rock feature will also get a bit of a makeover. Kelly Rafferty, deputy director of community services for recreation, told the paper.
The park features a water fall, frog spray ring, slide and water cannons, and is closed until the 2016 season.
