Children in the Hacienda Heights and Rowland Heights communities recently welcomed relief from the hot summer days thanks to two new splash pads opening at Los Robles and Carolyn Rosas parks.

“These splash pads are a wonderful addition to the Hacienda Heights and Rowland Heights communities,” said Los Angeles County Fourth District Supervisor Janice Hahn, a strong and committed supporter of parks and recreation programs.

“They’re a free and fun option for kids to cool off during hot summer days. I’m glad the County is able to provide residents with quality recreational amenities at their parks, and I know these splash pads will become popular destinations for families across the region.”

John Wicker, Director of the Department of Parks and Recreation, joined Supervisor Hahn’s Field Deputy Lauren Yokomizo and Parks Deputy Lynda Johnson to officially open the two splash pads to the public on Aug. 3.

“I truly believe that these two new splash pads and their positive impact on our communities are a reflection of our motto and guiding principle, which is Parks Make Life Better!” Wicker said. “They’re welcome additions to park amenities that are highly popular with residents, and we’re ecstatic that we’re able to offer additional free recreational opportunities for children to enjoy.”

Each 2,500-square-foot splash pad features interactive water play components for children of all ages. The splash pads include colorful shade canopies for parents and children to help them stay cool during hot, sunny days. The splash pads also use a recycled water system in an effort to conserve water.

The splash pad at Los Robles Park is located at 14906 E. Los Robles Ave., Hacienda Heights. The address for the Carolyn Rosas Park splash pad is 18500 E. Farjado St., Rowland Heights.
