The Smith Park splash pad was closed due to a power supply connectivity issue, city officials previously told the Journal-News.

The splash pads are generally open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Memorial Day through Labor Day.

The splash pads are down for maintenance about three to four times a year, according to Shelby Quinlivan, city spokeswoman. The city spends between $10,000 and $12,000 annually for maintenance and upkeep at both splash pads. She said it cost about $1,500 to fix the power supply issue.

Temperatures are expected to be in the low 80s through the weekend.

In 2006, the city opened a splash pad at Smith Park. In 2008, the city converted the former pool at Douglass Pool into a splash pad.
