The City of Dublin is excited to announce the start of construction for the renovation of the Water Play Area in Shannon Park. The former water feature had reached the end of its useful life and will be replaced by a modern, efficient “splashpad” type of water play area. The new design features a variety of different types of sprays and includes some interactive features. The new water play area’s bold, blue and white color scheme and moving water motifs will offer an exciting new water play experience.
Construction begins August 26, 2013. Project completion is expected in December, 2013.
Due to the water play area’s proximity to both of the park’s play structures, the construction necessitates closing both the 2-5 year old and 5-12 year old playground areas for the duration of construction. The restroom building and picnic areas will remain open during construction, however there will be limited access to the picnic area on the south side of the restroom building.
During construction, the City suggests visiting other nearby park playgrounds. Dolon Park at 11651 Padre Way is just .25 miles west of Shannon. Mape Park lies just .5 miles south of Shannon at 11711 Mape Way. Thank you for your patience and understanding while we work to build a first class water play experience in Shannon Park.
