About the Splash Pad

kids at splash padThe farm-themed splash pad in J.F. Kennedy Park, adjacent to Polen Farm, includes both small and large water play features including water cannons, multiple spray features and tall water dumping buckets. Two picnic shelters near the splash pad provide convenient locations for picnics or rest periods. The playground alongside the splash pad is also farm themed with a soft surface and encourages active play with multiple climbing features, slides, swings, ladders and more.

The splash pad is free and open seven days a week, May through September.   It is conveniently located at 5073 Bigger Road, close enough to ride a bike or walk. The Kennedy Park shelters are available on a first-come first-served basis only and cannot be reserved.
