Pioneer Park Splashpad Opens!

Many in Provo remember the canal at Pioneer Park – the arrival of each summer was heralded by the splashing and playing of children. Unfortunately, the canal was also adjacent to a fairly busy state highway.

In an effort to keep the area safe among other reasons, the canal had to be covered. At the time we issued a commitment to bring back the iconic water feature of the park in a safer form.
