What is a Splashpad?
A splashpad is an area for water play with no standing water. The water in the system is recycled/treated water that is treated to at least the same level of quality as swimming pool water standards. To help us in keeping our public aquatic facilities clean, we ask that swim diapers be worn at all times, those with diarrhea refrain from playing in the water, and we all do our part NOT to encourage the drinking of pool/splashpad water.
Splashpad Rules:
  • The splashpad is not supervised 
  • Swimsuits are required for play in the splashpad
  • Pets need to be outside of the fenced area
  • Swim diapers are required
  • Walk please - not responsible for injury incurred while running
  • Street shoes are not allowed in the water
  • This is a smoke-free environment
  • Avoid chewing gum in the splashpad
  • All bikes must stay outside of the fenced-in area
  • Plastic containers only
  • Parents and adults, please help enforce our safe play rules
