Mulberry Fields opening soon

Mulberry Fields should open just in time for the dog days of summer.

The park, located at the corner of Ford Road and Whitestown Road, has experience some delays, but Parks Board Superintendent Al Smith hopes to open the park before July 4. The primary cause of recent delays comes from water pressure difficulties with the splash park.

“We’re working with Water Play (the splash park manufacturer) to get the problem fixed,” Smith said. “We looked at it the other day, and it’s more of synchronization and adjustments.”

The parks board worked with a representative from the manufacturer Thursday, June 26, to correct the pressure issues. Smith said that over the weekend, however, new problems arose due to an underground water leak. Concrete curbs were installed for reinforcement, but some pipes were damaged in the process. The board does not know whether the damage is to irrigation lines or spray park lines, but it doesn’t expect the damage to cause long delays.

In addition to the splash park, the 38-acre park includes a skate park, walking trails, a basketball court, a playground and picnic areas.
