On Wednesday, officials with the Lou Dennis Community Park in Newburgh, Indiana, said that the splash pad at the park had been closed until further notice.
A post made by the park on Wednesday, June 23, indicated that safety issues were the reason for the splash pad's temporary closure.
"The splash pad at the Lou Dennis Community Park will be closed until further notice. Safety is number one and if the feature cannot run at 100% to ensure that safety, then we will not run it," the park's Wednesday post said.
A post made one day earlier on Tuesday, June 22, said that the splash pad had been "closed for the rest of the day due to a technical issue in the equipment room," but right now, it's not entirely clear as to whether or not the two closure announcements are connected.
With it being one of the only water parks in the Newburgh area, Parents like Haley Devine were upset by the news of the unexpected closing but look forward to it reopening.
"We were meeting for a playdate with another family, we've got four kids here and we were just excited to try out the new splash pad. We were definitely bummed when we came up to see that they were closed, we've heard good things about it and we were anxious to give it a try," said Devine.
As of now, the park's maintenance staff is working to resolve the issue. There is no set date when it will reopen.
