Murphy Aquatic Park will include an ADA-accessible water play area, as well as all-inclusive playground, trails, a large recreational hill, recreation pond and native plantings.

Washington Township Avon Parks and Recreation has been working to bring this water park to the community for the past five years, and the tentative opening date is scheduled for May of 2022. Here’s what we can expect when phase one of Murphy Aquatic Park opens this summer!

The waterpark will include a wave pool, water slides, toddler zone, and a large play feature in the center of the pool. What’s more, the central water playground is completely ADA accessible. Each body of water is zero-depth entry and everything is wheelchair accessible. There will also be water wheelchairs available for those that want to get in the water and join in the fun.

Water cannons will be placed at all different levels, so children can access them and play together. Extra-wide ramps throughout the water playground allows easy transitions from one activity to another, including three different slides accessible from the lower deck features.

Playground 

The large play area outside of the waterpark at Murphy Aquatic Park includes signage for non-verbal children, spaces to hide among the playground for those who need a little break, and a merry-go-round accessible to wheelchairs. The merry-go-round can be spun by someone outside or inside the fixture. Shaded areas protect those who can’t be in the sun for long periods. There are sensory and wheelchair swings, a chair zip line and accessible slides. Deck spacing throughout the playground is wider than ADA standards and a sidewalk circling the playground allows for easier access.

The parks department plans to hold their grand opening in late May of 2022 and include special sensory days at both sections of Murphy Aquatic Park throughout the year.
