Grand Park’s splash pad area will be closed for 4 days – JULY 5 thru 8, opening by the weekend on SAT JULY 9.

Something to definitely put on the calendar is Dance Downtown: Cumbia where you can experience live music and dance lessons in the fountain area on FRI JUL 8 // 7PM – 11PM // FREE.



The Grand Park Playground on the Event Lawn (near City Hall) will remain open from 8AM-8PM as usual. The playground features a custom 20-foot-high tree house with a four-foot-tall roller slide, a 12-foot-tall tube slide, seven berms that range from one to four-feet-tall with some having added features, such as rock-climbing handles, a rope climber, and a tunnel that visitors can crawl through and outdoor musical instruments.
