Despite the ongoing drought, the water play features at both Columbia Park and Broadway Park are running this summer in an effort to encourage children to beat the summer heat in a safe manner — and not by swimming in canals.

Due to water usage restrictions, however, the water park hours have been limited to 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. daily and the City of Turlock decreased the length of time the water cycles run once the button is pushed by users from five minutes to three minutes.
