Splash Station

Reopening Splash Station won’t require a long-term fix, Cleburne Deputy City Manager Chris Fuller said on Tuesday, but for now it’s a waiting game.

“Right now we’re waiting on the delivery of parts,” Fuller said. “We don’t know how long that will take but it won’t be very long. Our priority is to make the repairs and get the park back open for the public as soon as possible. For the moment though that depends on when the parts we need arrive.”

The water park has been closed since Sunday, the victim of a valve malfunction discovered late Saturday night.

“There are four main motors in the park that operate the pumps,” Fuller said. “We found out Saturday night that some of the valves had malfunctioned, which caused water to get into the motors.”

The motors have been dried out and the valves will be replaced. 

“The status right now is we’re waiting on parts and working on determining if any of the motors need to be replaced then getting all the repairs done so there’s no reoccurrence of the situation,” Fuller said.

Fuller encouraged residents to check the city’s web page and Facebook page for progress updates.

Splash Station, 1010 Hillsboro St., offers pools, slides, diving boards, a lazy river and a concession stand. The park is open 1-6 p.m. Sunday and noon to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday with lap swim offered from 6-9:30 a.m. Monday through Saturday. For information, visit cleburne.net or call 817-556-6259.
