Grand Opening of Sears Splash
Update: The Sears Splash Pad grand opening will be held Friday, August 17 at 10:30 a.m. at Sears Park, 2250 Ambler Ave. This was rescheduled partly due to weather.
The City of Abilene will host a grand opening for the new Sears Splash Pad on Monday, August 13 at 9 a.m.
Sears Splash pad is located at Sears Park, 2250 Ambler Ave. Sears Splash is free to the public, and after the grand opening, will operate seasonally from sunrise to sunset, seven days a week. This new splash pad joins the Nelson, Scarborough, Red Bud and Stevenson splash pads to the City.
The Sears Splash Pad is 3,091 square feet and has 18 water features for all ages including two slides and a large dumping bucket that everyone can enjoy. Similar to the Redbud Splash Pad there is a water journey play area for small children. Sears Splash also has shaded benches, with picnic tables, pavillion, a water fountain and restroom facilities nearby. Open flame barbeque pits are not allowed within 100 feet of the splash pad. This project was approved by voters with the May 2015 bond election.
