It was supposed to open this month, but Wake Forest officials now aren’t sure exactly when the town’s first sprayground will open for play.

Town officials announced this week that the opening of the Taylor Street Park sprayground has been postponed indefinitely because of issues involving the subcontractor who was hired to pour the concrete. The sprayground had been scheduled to open by the end of this month.

Work will continue on the project, but there is no timetable for when it will open, a Wake Forest press release says. The delay is not expected to affect the final cost of the project, which is $345,200.

Work began on the sprayground at Taylor Street Park, 416 N. Taylor St., in April. The zero-depth aquatic play area will feature dozens of devices that spray, mist or dump water. Admission to the sprayground will be free once it opens.

The project is a joint effort between the town of Wake Forest and Wake County, which is responsible for administering the contracts and construction.
