Hamilton splash pads close Monday; Marcum Park fountain to flow into the fall

The water features at the park, including the M-shaped sculpture with a heart-shaped opening and flowing water, will remain open through this year’s Operation Pumpkin festival, which runs from Oct. 12-14.

“If we have a few hot days, kids can still go and cool off there,” said Steve Timmer, director of the Hamilton Parks Conservancy.

“We are going to allow the Marcum Park features open until Oct. 14, but the other splash pads — the other six, we left them open an extra week because of the heat — they’ll shut down Monday,” Timmer said. Sunday will be the last day to use them.

The Booker T. Washington Community Center got a new splash pad in July of 2017.
