We received an e-mail from Andy Scheffer of Seattle Parks and Recreation with some news about the spray park at Beacon Mountain. Here’s what he said:
The spray pad at Beacon Mtn. â€“ Jefferson Park is temporarily closed because the water is not draining quick enough. The engineer is researching a fix and the contractor is going to make the necessary changes as soon as he is given direction (early this week). The system was tested on multiple occasions prior to the opening on July 14th. However, the issue was not readily apparent until the spray park experienced, continual, high usage.
I sincerely regret this inconvenience and can promise you that we are doing everything possible to get the system up and running again. Please donâ€™t hesitate to e-mail or call me with additional questions or concerns.
Thank you, kindly
