Construction to Begin on ADA Splash Park
The City of Parkersburg is pleased to announce that Hunt Valley Contractors has been given a notice to proceed to construct a new 10,000 sq. ft. handicap accessible splash park at the City Park Pool. Construction is slated to begin in September with a project completion date of May 2019. The new facility will replace an underutilized basketball court next to the pool and significantly enhance the amount of social and play offerings available at the City Park Pool.
To mark the occasion, this City will host a groundbreaking ceremony on Tuesday, September 4 at 3 p.m. at the City Park Pool. Officials will also be announcing planned improvements for the pool area. Light refreshments will be available immediately following remarks and local residents are encouraged to attend.
To ensure the new facility appeals to a variety of users, three different play zones will be constructed. They include a Tot Zone, Family Zone and Dynamic Zone. The Tot Zone will have several low to the ground, but colorful water features that create soft water formations. This zone will be located in the northwest corner of the splash pad. The next largest zone is the Family Zone. The family zone is suitable for all age groups, including those adults still young at heart. Water features will include two palm trees, water way and an AquaGather Station. The AquaGather Station is particularly unique in that it will allows users of all abilities to have complete control over the water flow—where it goes and how fast or slow it flows. The main attraction, will be a new, ultra-modern playground in the Dynamic Zone called the HydroHub2.
The HydroHub2 combines raised platforms with interactive experiences to deliver a unique water play experience. Linked by a bridge and tunnel, kids can navigate the structure while dodging or being doused with overhead water effects. Equally fun will be two nearby towering water features, one of which is called the FlashFlood. The FlashFlood is a 17-foot tall structure that unleashes a torrent of water on people gathered below.
Hunt Valley is a family owned and operated business located in Owing Mills, Maryland. The company employs 49 people and has a general contractor’s license in West Virginia. Hunt Valley has more than 37 years of construction experience and 10 years of experience installing Landscape Structures equipment across Maryland, D.C., Virginia and West Virginia, and is proud to bring the City’s new splash park to fruition.
