City Splash Pads and Interactive Fountain are Safe for the Public

Facilities Undergo Daily Inspections

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – After a recent event surrounding the death of a child in Arlington, Texas due to an amoeba infection, the City wants to reassure the public that the water quality in our three City splash pads located at Bill Witt, Lindale, and Salinas Parks are inspected daily to ensure they are safe for the community.

All City splash pads include automatic chlorinators, automatic pH control systems, and sanitation UV light systems that work by periodically measuring levels throughout the day and alert unusual readings. These three systems work in tandem. In addition to the automated processes, City crews manually test for proper chlorine and pH levels every day before opening the splash pads.

As a reminder, splash pads are open from May through October.

The City also maintains and services the wading pool at the Bayfront Park Fountain on Shoreline Drive. The wading pool is tested for chlorine and pH three times a day, seven days a week.
