Downtown Cary Park’s maintenance team has discovered an issue with the Splash Pad that requires our attention. As part of our commitment to providing a high-quality experience for everyone, we have temporarily closed the Splash Pad. Our team is investigating the issue further to determine next steps. We do not currently have a timeline of when the Splash Pad will reopen as this is an evolving situation. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work toward a solution. Please stay tuned for future updates.
