Spray Pad Now Open at Noble Park Pool

spray padThe spray pad area at the Noble Park Pool is now open to the public.  The spray pad replaces the former small wading pool.  Parks Services Director Mark Thompson says, “This feature is geared for kids eight years of age and younger who are being supervised by a parent, guardian, or responsible adult.  It’s perfect for small kids who may not be ready for the pool.  The kids can play, splash, and enjoy all the fun spray components.”  Children in swim diapers are allowed in the spray pad area.  Thompson adds, “The spray pad also is great for those enjoying the pool deck and wanting a quick spray of water to cool off.”  Parks Services had hoped to open the spray pad area at the same time as the pool; however, equipment delays slowed the construction process. 

This spring the City of Paducah contracted for the reconstruction of the Noble Park Pool including new components such as the pool liner and filtration, piping, and disinfection systems.  The pool also received new amenities such as new diving boards, two slides, more lounge chairs and canopies, and an expanded menu at the concessions area.  Thompson adds, “The pool has not had a significant renovation in more than 20 years.  This project was a $1.2 million reinvestment in an important asset that provides families an enjoyable recreational opportunity and allows the Parks Department to offer affordable swimming lessons.”  The Noble Park Pool averages 300-400 visitors per day.

The Noble Park Pool opened for the season on Memorial Day and will be open through August 11.  The pool is open Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Sunday 1 to 5 p.m.  It is closed to the public on Mondays.  Pool admission is $5 for adults and for children at least five years old; $3 for children four years old and younger, and $3 for seniors.

The Parks Services Department wants the public to be aware that due to filtration capacity limits, swim diapers are prohibited in the pool.  All swimmers must be toilet trained.  Children in swim diapers can play in the spray pad area.
