The Cloud at Kiwanis Park Grand Opening Celebration
Friday, June 15, 2018 - 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Kiwanis Park, 5233 S. Ash Ave. (park entrance off of Baseline Rd. just west of Mill Ave.)
Join us in celebrating the new splash playground! Refreshments, giveaways and fun for the kids!
In February 2017, the City Council approved $1.7 million for design and construction of the playground. The site selection criteria included existing parking availability, access to utilities, water and electrical, as well as proximity to existing restrooms and ADA accessibility.
The new playground will become Tempe’s only large water park amenity. Other, smaller splash pads are located throughout Tempe. Admission to any splash playground and splash pad in Tempe is free.
Residents provided feedback about how they wanted to play and keep cool at the future Kiwanis Splash Playground at a community open house on March 13, 2017, at Kiwanis Park. They also commented online.
Construction began on January 8, 2018.
