The Parks Department offers 8 splash pads for your enjoyment (Memorial, McCormick, Waynedale, Shoaff, Buckner, Robert E. Meyers, Taylor's Dream Boundless Playground, and Franklin Park).

There is an activation bollard (green) that needs the top touched and the water will run for a 4 minute cycle. Simply touch the bollard again for more fun! The use of the Splash pads is FREE!

Please note, dogs are not allowed within 100 feet of any Splash pad. This is for the safety of park users.

The City’s free splash pads will remain open until the end of September, or early October, when they are winterized.
