​The work to replace the childrens' pool at Andrew Leitch Park is continuing despite the recent cold temperatures. In its place will be a new children's water park that is set to open on Memorial Day weekend.

The old pool and water features were "completely outdated," according to Amarjit Riat, the Prince William County Department of Parks and Recreation project manager overseeing the project, and there were numerous times the pool was shut down to make repairs. "It was 23 years old and there was a lot of maintenance we had to do."

The old pool was closed in September when demolition started and will be replaced by a "brand-new water park," Riat said of the project that is a zero-depth facility. There won't be a pool, but instead there will be multiple water features to entertain children. Those features include Misty Mountain, Sneaky Soaker, Bloomin' Soaker, Geyser, Solo Spurt, Gusher, Funbrella and Bubble Trouble, among many others.

"The spray ground will feature interactive climbing and crawling experiences and numerous spray elements that appeal to younger children. It is very well designed and state-of-the-art. They will love it," Riat said.
