Fire Department to Turn on Fire Hydrants for Water Play

CEDAR RAPIDS, IA – Cedar RapidsThe Cedar Rapids Fire Department will turn on fire hydrants for water play at Rollin’ Recmobile stops at Cherry Hill, Delaney and Bever Parks. The Fire Department will turn the water on for a period of one to two hours at each stop when the temperature is 80 degrees Fahrenheit or higher and there is no severe weather in the area. Parks and Recreation Department staff will ensure that social distancing guidelines are followed. These parks were selected because they do not have splash pads. The schedule is as follows:

Cherry Hill Park - west side of the swimming pool


June 30 from 6:00-8:00 p.m.

Remaining Tuesdays through August 11 from 5:00-6:00 p.m.
