Repaired Waller Park Ponds Up and Running Again

The ponds and fountains at Waller Park in Santa Maria are up and running after necessary repairs.

The lower pond had been partially drained to repair circulating pumps, which cycle water from the lower pond to the upper pond. Although the lower pond has been full for several days, a final step in repair was completed Wednesday, and the fountains are once again fully functioning.

Waller Park has a lush, 153-acre urban forest and features open lawns, shady picnic areas, lush trees for bird watching, several playgrounds, basketball and volleyball courts, baseball diamonds, a disc golf course and pony rides for children.

Waller County Park is at the south end of Santa Maria just north of Skyway Drive. Park day use is free for general activities.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
