Clarksville Parks and Recreation DepartmentClarksville, TN – The City of Clarksville is proud to announce the grand opening of the city’s first all-inclusive splash pad and playground at Heritage Park, located at 1241 Peachers Mill Road.

The new playground and splash pad will provide a community play experience for all to enjoy regardless of their ability.

Both areas will meet current Americans with Disabilities Act guidelines making them the first of their kind in Clarksville.

The features in both areas are low to the ground to be easily reached, and all areas will be wheelchair accessible with the play structures including ramps. The area surrounding the splash pad and playground will feature three picnic tables and five benches. A pavilion and tables will be added later this summer.

These new facilities are made possible in part by the generous donations from the Clarksville Rotary Club and the Sunrise and Sunset Rotary Clubs of Clarksville and the Clarksville-Montgomery County Community Health Foundation.

“We look forward to a time of celebration with the Clarksville community as we officially open this new, innovative, and fun addition to the Clarksville parks system,” said Clarksville Mayor Kim McMillan.

The Heritage Park Splash Pad will be the city’s largest splash pad to date, featuring 27 spray nozzles and covering a 60′ diameter space. The city currently operates splash pads at Edith Pettus Park, Dixon Park and Lettie Kendall Park.

After the grand opening, the Heritage Park playground will be open daily from dawn until dusk. The splash pad will be open daily from 10:00am to 7:00pm through early September.
