Demo begins to bring new splash pad to Hessel Park

Demolition of the old splash pad, play structure, sandbox, and restroom house has begun at Hessel Park in Champaign. 

The newer play structures remain open at the park. At least one portapotty has been added for guests’ temporary use during construction.

According to CPD’s website:

Phase 2 — completion goal by winter 2017. Construction set to begin in fall 2017

This phase will consist of constructing a new splash pad where the current playground and splash pad are located. The goal of the new splash pad is to be compatible with the recently created Douglass Park Splash Pad. This way features and functionality can be interchanged seasonally keeping the experience fresh and new for the kids.
