The Tualatin Commons Splash Pad is getting a makeover. Construction was scheduled to start on March 15 and will wrap up this summer. The splash pad is a key feature of the Tualatin Commons outdoor public plaza in the heart of downtown, and is a popular community gathering place.

The renovations include new spray features, an updated textured and colored concrete surface, and a new recirculating system. The recirculating system includes new pumps and filters that will protect the water quality. Spray features were chosen by the community at one of Tualatin’s newest events: ¡Viva Tualatin!

The splash pad opened in 1994 and is still the only such facility in the city. Due to its age, however, it is due for an update that will ease maintenance issues and address safety concerns.

This project has been made possible through grant funding from the State of Oregon’s Parks and Recreation Department’s Local Government Grant Program and matching funds from the City.
