Just in time for the long Memorial Day weekend, the City of Indio switched on the spigots for the water play areas at Yucca Park, Dominguez Park, Cahuilla Park and Miles Avenue Park. These “splashpads” are accessible for play via a push of the button from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. In addition, the play equipment is ready for use, with swings and basketball nets hung!
A combination of hard-to-get parts, a pandemic and property damage put Indio's five water play areas out of commission last year. At this point, only North Jackson Park’s water play area is still being repaired.
Check out Indio’s parks this summer, which include two dedicated dog parks, the Mulligan Dog Park and the Station 86 Dog Park. A number of rubber playing surfaces were also upgraded during the pandemic, and many of these areas are shaded, providing a cooler and safe place to play!
