PISCATAWAY, NJ - A groundbreaking ceremony for the new outdoor Piscataway Spray Park will be held this Saturday, November 9 at Noon.
Mayor Wahler along with township and county officials invite community members to join them for the groundbreaking at 520 Hoes Lane at Northwest corner of Community Center lot adjacent to Piscataway Senior Center and John F. Kennedy Library.
The spray park is now being built concurrently alongside the Piscataway Community Center with both slated to open this summer.
According to township officials, the large, pirate-themed spray park will have two open flume water slides, two spray cannons, a deck geyser and a large supersplash bucket connected to a ship’s bow surrounded by hose sprayers and arches.
Adjacent to the splashpad of the park will be covered table seating for families to enjoy the outdoors. The spray park will be in the northwest corner of the Community Center lot and will nicely complement its indoor, three-pool aquatic center.
“We are thrilled to add more family fun in Piscataway,” Mayor Brian C. Wahler said. “We are confident that every good weather day will bring many young children and their parents to this wonderful spray park.”
In addition to the indoor and outdoor water amenities, the Community Center will also have a full-size basketball court with overhead running track, large fitness center, dance and art studios, a teen lounge, and men’s, women’s and family locker rooms.
While the Spray Park has long been considered Phase II of the Community Center project, breaking ground on it was not expected to happen until further down the calendar. However, with construction of the Community Center moving ahead of schedule and with funds available, Township officials decided to move forward with the Spray Park now so the entire complex could be enjoyed this summer.
