Splash Pads

Children playing at a Sprayground

What is a Splash Pad?

Splash pads are water playgrounds with fixtures and fountains that spray water. Splash pads are not set in standing water, making them safe for small children.

A popular alternative to swimming pools, splash pads save resources by recirculating and filtering the water. Additionally, they do not require lifeguards or staffing.

How to Use a Splash pad?

To use a Splash pad, push the button, mounted on a bollard at the edge of the splash pad to activate the water for 15 minutes. If nobody pushes the button again within 15 minutes, the water will stop.

Operating Hours

Splash pads will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., April 1 through October 31. Splash pads located at Polo Pool and Mineral Springs will be operated based on the pool schedule and will require admission fees (the Polo Pool splash pads will operate independently outside of pool season)
