Members of the City Council, along with representatives of the local Kiwanis clubs, Bullhead City staff, and members of the public gathered to celebrate the grand re-opening and ribbon cutting ceremony of the Kiwanis Splash Park at Ken Fovargue Park, Monday June 27th at 1PM. City staff closed the splash park on June 23rd to allow for the installation of 4800 square feet of foam rubber flooring produced by LifeFloor. The new surface covering the splash park is more heat resistant, slip resistant, and softer on impact than the concrete surface it replaced, providing a safer and more enjoyable experience for guests. City Council approved the $141,000 project to hire the contractor, Rain Drop, to install the flooring during the May 3rd city council meeting.
The Splash Park was originally opened in 2014 after the Bullhead City Morning and Bullhead City Noon Kiwanis Clubs worked together for 5 years to gather the more than $200,000 it cost to build. The funding was gathered from many anonymous donors, Kiwanis fundraising efforts, a $25,000 contribution from the City of Bullhead and a dollar-for-dollar match of all donations from the BHHS Legacy Foundation.
