New Splash Pad Coming to Crossroads at Silverbell District Park

A new 2400 square foot splash pad is coming to the southwest corner of Crossroads at Silverbell District Park in Marana (a northwest suburb of Tucson).

The splash pad, which had a budget of $775,000 and is currently slated to open on August 30 2018, features a series of floor geysers, floor lighting, integrated seating, and shade for public use. Floor lighting will be used to create a colorful light show that converts the facility from a play space to an art element in the park as the sun sets.

The splash pad will be one of many recreational and play options at this popular northwest Tucson park.

Crossroads at Silverbell District Park also has three lighted ball fields, two lighted soccer fields, five ramadas with grills, one group ramada with a grill, two lighted tennis courts, two lighted basketball courts, two lighted volleyball courts, one lighted dog park, two covered playgrounds, one horseshoe pit, and access to the Santa Cruz Shared Use Path for walking, running, and biking. Crossroads at Silverbell District Park is also conveniently located near Wheeler Taft Abbett Sr Library and Leman Academy, making this part of Marana a true hub of activity for the whole family.

Similar to the other Marana Splash Pad at Heritage River Park (which is 4600 square feet, for reference), this new pad will be free to the public and open to all ages. A nearby ramada is available to reserve for a nominal fee for birthday parties or family get-togethers - $12 per hour for standard ramadas and $30 per hour for group ramadas.

Both Marana Splash Pads are open from April to October, 8am to 7pm, seven days per week.
