The public is invited to visit the newest amenity to Boulevard Plaza – the city’s first Splash Pad. Featuring several water features and a park with many different pieces of playground equipment designed for all ages, this new facility opened to a crowd of approximately 1200 people as part of the grand opening event held Tuesday, June 12.
The splash pad and park at Boulevard Plaza will be open every day of the week during the summer from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and is free. Picnic tables with shade umbrellas are onsite, and are available on a first come, first serve basis. No reservations are required. Concessions are available from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. inside the Coon Rapids Ice Center facility, located next to the park. Plenty of parking is available near the park.
The splash pad and park are the newest features at Boulevard Plaza, located at 11000 Crooked Lake Boulevard. This area has become a new community gathering place featuring the Coon Rapids Ice Center, Farmers Market, 4th of July Celebration and other special events and activities throughout the year.
The construction of the splash pad and park was possible thanks to Park Bond funding approved by voters in 2013. $17.4 million was approved by voters to enhance and renovate several Coon Rapids parks and build a new park at Boulevard Plaza. Many park improvements are finished; three remaining parks will be renovated in 2018 and 2019 which will complete the entire plan.
