posted May 19, 2015, 4:23 PM by Aaron Baker   [ updated May 20, 2015, 3:15 PM by Tyson Kennedy ]

Summer time is right around the corner, making it the ideal time for the opening of the new splash pad at Hafen Park.

We are proud to announce that City officials will be cutting the ribbon on the new splash pad at Hafen Park on Friday, May 22, 2015 at 3:30 p.m.  "Cutting the ribbon will allow us to officially open the Hafen Park Splash Pad for the entire summer," stated Mayor Allan Litman. "This is a momentous occasion for our entire community. It wouldn't have been possible without the participation and dedication of the City Staff and Community Development Block Grant funding.  I feel very strongly that community development leads the entire community to an enhanced economic development for the future,” added Litman.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held at 3:30 p.m. on Friday, May 22, 2015 at Hafen Park, located at 450 Hafen Lane.

“This is an exciting time for The City of Mesquite,” Nicholas F. Montoya, Interim Director. “We  want to give a special thanks to Mayor, City Council, Dr. Brian Paulson, CDBG Community Development Coordinator, Public Works Director, Bill Tanner and the Athletic & Leisure Services Department.”

The Hafen Splash Pad project was mainly funded by a community development block grant from the Community Resources Management Division of Clark County, Nevada with some additional City funds. The project has been underway and in planning stages for almost a year, the facility includes an open lawn, the walking trail around the facility, a pavilion, nearby picnic areas, basketball court and shade canopy by the fish pond nearby. The Splash Pad is an above-ground play area with various water fountains and streams; it combines different water movements to entertain users.

Hafen Park splash pad will be open for public use after the ceremony. Children are encouraged to wear their swimsuits to the ribbon-cutting ceremony so they can play in the splash pad afterward. As part of the festivities, the Mesquite Fire Department will cook free hamburgers and hot dogs for attendees.
