City Council Greenlights Splashpad Project for Snoqualmie Community Park, Targeting Summer 2024 Debut

On August 28, 2023, the Snoqualmie City Council passed Resolution No. 1661 to purchase and install a splashpad in Snoqualmie Community Park.

This venture, estimated to cost approximately $1.5 million, is included in the City’s sanctioned 2023-2028 Capital Improvement Plan (CIP). The water feature is slated for completion by the summer of 2024.

The resolution’s passage permits the City to authorize a purchase order with Aquatix by Landscape Structures, Inc. The company will oversee the splashpad’s architectural design, its various water features, as well as its mechanical elements and complete installation.

The water feature is planned to take over the area currently housing the basketball court, selected due to its convenient distance from existing park facilities like the restroom and equipment storage building. Alternative locations for the basketball court are presently under review by the City.

Mayor Ross commented, “We are excited to bring this fun amenity to Snoqualmie Community Park, offering Snoqualmie families a waterplay option during the summer months right here at home.”

As the planned opening in the summer of 2024 approaches, the splash pad will remain a focus of community interest. Included in the City’s 2023-2028 Capital Improvement Plan, the new addition is designed to serve multiple functions, from recreational water play to hosting various community events.

  • This is very cool. I’m happy to see something like this in our community for the kids. But, wondering if this might be a replacement for a pool everyone has been wanting. I personally rather have something like this instead of the pool. It looks like lots of fun.
