Splash Pads

Splash Pads Open for the Season on April 22nd!

Splash down at Adventure Pete’s five different islands located at the following city parks: Nelson Park,  Redbud Park, Sears Park, Stevenson Park, and Scarborough Park! 

Splash Pads are open seven days a week from dawn to dusk and recapture 90% of water, which is treated and recirculated providing a fun, safe, water-conservative environment for family and friends. These aquatic spots provide dozens of different water features for all ages, ranging from water sprayers to slides to massive dumping buckets, and are free to the community to enjoy. Splash Pad season runs from mid-April to mid-October.
