Coming Soon: A Big Splash in Wilton

WILTON — A scheduled check presentation by the Friends of Wilton Recreation for picnic tables and benches on Thursday, June 2 turned, wet, wild and wonderful, as it became a preview for an upcoming summer fun destination – behold, the soon to be opened Gavin Splash Park! The exact date of the grand opening is still TBA, but coming soon just in time for relief from the summer’s heat! Here are some highlights of the fun features of the new park to wet your whistle, as it were, from our friends at the Town of Wilton Recreation at Gavin Park: • The size of the splash park is 7,000 square feet! • There will be 20+ spray elements including ground sprays, water cannons and water dumping buckets • A Concession stand and full handicap accessibility • Restricted to age 12 and under, and must be accompanied by an adult 18 or older (proof of age required) • 135 person maximum capacity on wet surface • This $400,000 project was built by Ashland, Ohio based Rain Drop Products LLC It is located adjacent to the Christopher Dailey Memorial Gymnasium and the Gavin Park playground • Picnic tables and benches for parents to watch children donated by Stewart’s Shops and the Friends of Wilton Recreation • Town employees will staff the facility and monitor attendance • Fees: resident fee- $2 per child (proof required), Non-residents- $5 per child. Anyone not using the wet portion of the pad will not be charged. • Hours of operation will be 11 a.m.-6:30 p.m., Monday-Sunday • Birthday Parties may be considered during special hours, but camps, schools, organizations groups will not be allowed entry due to space limitations. Oh, and you know we’ll be there when the “everybody in the pool!” word is given – for that is the epitome of what we do. - Arthur Gonick
