Children and parents in Royston will have a splash park on their doorstep after North Herts District Council confirmed the £160,000 project will start this autumn.
Work on the splash park at Priory Memorial Gardens is expected to take up to eight weeks but is not due to open until late spring 2016 to coincide with better weather.
Councillor Jane Grey, responsible for leisure at the council, said: “We know after extensive consultation with the communities of Royston one of the things people really want for their local parks is an interactive water splash feature.
“We are now in a position to develop those exciting plans and we want to encourage everyone in the community to have their say on the proposals.”
The council is seeking comments on the type of activities and play equipment to be provided, and the age group of the children the new equipment should cater for.
