Plano Takes Water Splash Pad Safety to a Level Above

Windhaven Meadows splash pad

Have you ever wondered how the City of Plano ensures good water quality at our two splash pads? It’s important to have a safe and fun time when recreating at our facilities. That’s why Plano’s care protocols exceed state requirements to keep our water properly disinfected.

Chlorine is the primary disinfecting agent and ultra-violet light is the secondary disinfecting agent at both of our splash pads. The splash pad systems also include automated sensors that monitor levels and feed chemicals. 

Both City splash pads are completely drained, cleaned and disinfected twice each season.

Staff verifies water quality at the Plano Aquatic Center splash pad about every two hours when the facility is open to the public. Because there is no staff onsite at Windhaven Meadows Park, staff verifies the chemical levels at this location at least once per day. Additionally, the Windhaven Meadows splash pad has a built-in failsafe that disables all water features if the chemical levels are out of proper range. 

Plano Aquatic Center’s splash pad is closed for the season. The Windhaven Meadows water feature closes for the season on Sunday, October 17.
