Veterans Park Splashpad

The splashpad is open during the summer months, from May to September. Hours are 9 am to 9 pm.

7,600 square feet of nature-themed water features await children, including cattails, waterbugs, a snail, a butterfly, dumping flowers, water spray cannons, and a giant splash bucket that fills and drenches everyone nearby!

Our splashpad is directly adjacent to a playground so children can choose to play in either area.

There are five benches that can seat 3 or 4 people. Two small pavilions have tables seating around 6, and two larger pavilions have three tables - seating around 18 people. A large pavilion is nearby that can accomodate very large groups.

Additional seating is along a 'spray wall' on the east side of the splashpad.

Seating is first-come, first serve. Reservations of tables are not currently available.

Bathrooms facilities are currently portable toilets only and there are no water fountains at this time. (improvements coming later Summer 2020)
