Pearsall Park Splash Pad Upgrade


SUMMARY:

This ordinance authorizes a contract with Kraftsman Commercial Playgrounds & Waterparks to provide all labor material and equipment to provide and install a water filtration system and holding tanks at Pearsall Park a total cost of $104,965.50. Funds are available from the 2017-2022 Bond Program and are included in the FY 2019-2024 Capital Improvement Program Budget.


BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

Submitted for City Council consideration and action is the attached offer from Kraftsman Commercial Playgrounds & Waterparks for the purchase, delivery and installation of splash pad filtration equipment at Pearsall Park. This splash pad upgrade will enhance the water quality and feature improvements to Pearsall Park by providing a larger water filtration system with a capacity of 400 gallons per minute (GPM) as opposed to the current 200 GPM system. The filtration system will be augmented with a 2,000 gallon poly backwash holding tank and a 10,000 gallon holding tank that will allow a larger volume of water to be filtered through the system and onto the splash pad. This upgrade will result in better water efficiency, filtration, and less splash pad down time for the user.

The Pearsall Splash Pad was opened in June 2016 with overwhelming success. The Splash Pad and playground have become a destination for families to enjoy the outdoors and thousands of children and adults utilize the splash pad from March through October annually. Due to greater than expected utilization of the park, the filtration system needs to be upgraded to handle the volume of individuals using the Splash pad. These upgrades will allow for better filtration, water savings, and staff efficiency.
