Plans for a nearly $700,000 spray pad at Storvik Park moved ahead with the City Council’s approval of purchase of spray equipment, including spray heads, controllers and water pumps.

The spray park will have a marine adventure theme, Nicole Johnston with the city’s Parks and Recreation Department, told the city Council at their meeting on Monday. She said the project includes construction of a new restroom nearby.

The total project budget is $682,500, the matching grant the city received is $335,000, the fundraising goal is now $180,000 and about $80,000 has been received. The source for the rest of the match will come from the Real Estate Excise Tax $100,000 and the remaining $67,500 will come out of impact fees.

The spray pad is expected to open in late August or early September.
