Splash Pad at Essentia Plaza at the Lights

With summer temperatures rising, Splash pads and pools are the perfect place for respite. That’s why we installed a small zero-elevation splash pad in West Fargo at Essentia Plaza at the Lights. It is located at the south end of the plaza in a blue splash pad zone. How do you turn on the splash pad at the Lights? There is a circular pad that needs to be touched by hand or foot.
