Taylor Street Park Sprayground

Taylor Street Park SpraygroundConstruction on the Taylor Street Park Sprayground is underway and expected to be completed later this year. 

The initiative is a joint effort between the Town of Wake Forest and Wake County, which is responsible for administering the contracts and construction.

Upon completion, Wake Forest's first sprayground will be a dynamic, zero-depth aquatic play area that provides endless hours of fun for the entire family. The sprayground is designed to combine the sensations of different water movements—flowing, misting, and jetting—with dozens of diverse features for an unequaled aquatic play adventure.


Funding
The total cost to build the Taylor Street Park Sprayground is $345,272.

The project received Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding through Wake County Human Services. As part of the grant funding agreement, Wake County requires the applicant to provide funds to cover at least 20% of project costs, while the CDBG funds pay up to 80% of total project costs.

Hollins Construction, headquartered on Rogers Road in Wake Forest, is responsible for all concrete and utility work. Hollins has partnered with Vortex, the supplier and manufacturer of the sprayground equipment to install all fixtures and controls association with the project.

The Town also received $2,500 from the Kiwanis Club of Wake Forest to be used to purchase a memorial bench in memory of Tom Dimmock - a long-time Kiwanis Club president.
