New splash pad planned for Planeview neighborhood

WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) The City of Wichita is excited about some of its new splash pads.

Mayor Jeff Longwell talked Thursday morning about an aquatics feature coming to Planeview Park in southeast Wichita.

The renderings from the aquatics master plan feature trees and spray nozzles in the park.

Longwell says it's the first time Planeview has had anything like this.

"I hesitate to say just splash pads because it's so much more than splash pads, it's interactive water features, it's an aquatics playground that can be utilized to from early May to until potentially late October dependant on the weather," said the mayor.

He did not say when the new water features would be open to the public.
