Beginning in February, San Marcos will implement an off-season closure of the City’s five splash pads to support water conservation. The splash pad closures at the Buelow, Lakeview, Mulberry, San Elijo, and Sunset parks will start on Feb. 1 and conclude on Mar. 15.
Looking ahead, the off-season closure will be in place annually during historically low usage in the fall and winter and reopen for peak usage in the spring and summer. While the splash pads are closed, other park amenities will be open for the community’s enjoyment. The City continually monitors local, and state water restrictions, and the splash pad off-season closure demonstrates we are mindful of drought restrictions.
