UPDATE: Traverse City Splash Pad Open For Labor Day Weekend

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE:

The Traverse City William G. Milliken Waterscape in Clinch Park is officially open. 

The waterscape will be open from 11:30 AM to 6:30 PM during Labor Day weekend.

The City passed a final inspection Friday from the Grand Traverse County Health Department.

_____________________________

Traverse City, the DEQ, and the Health Department met yesterday, to discuss the next steps toward re-opening the Clinch Park splash pad.

The park shut down earlier this Summer after sewage was discovered in the water.

Yesterday, the DEQ and Health Department granted conditional approval to operate the waterscape, as long as the city modifies some grates, a pump flow meter, and signage.

The city is working to make those changes, and now hopes to have the splash pad open as early as this coming weekend.
