Highland Village City Council approved plans for the removal, disposal and replacement of the rubber splash pad surface at Doubletree Ranch Park on Sept. 13.

The rubber surfacing at the Doubletree Ranch Park splash pad needs to be replaced because of wear and tear, according to the agenda item. The splash pad was installed in 2017.

City staff looked into surfacing options and determined that DuraPlay surfacing was the best option because it provides the most longevity, impact attenuation and the least maintenance, according to the agenda item. DuraPlay’s warranty is three years, and its life expectancy is 10-14 years.

The total cost of the project will be $183,105 and is expected to be completed before summer 2023.
