Spray park reopens later, reduces hours to conserve water

The opening of Concord's popular Meadow Homes Spray Park, at 1351 Detroit Ave., has been delayed by three weeks this year due to the drought. The park, which usually opens in early May, will open this year on Memorial Day Weekend, Saturday, May 23.

To conserve water, hours have also been shortened by two hours a day. Until schools lets out for the summer recess, the park will be open Monday through Friday from 3 to 6 p.m. and noon to 6 p.m. on weekends. After school is in recess, hours will be noon to 6 p.m. daily.

While the City of Concord is very aware of the drought and conserves water whenever possible, the spray park was designed to filter, treat and recycle the water it uses. The later starting time and slightly reduced hours of service will result in the water park using 25 percent less water this year. This is only one of many conservation measures the City will be taking to meet its water reduction goals this summer.
