ABOUT THE SPLASH PAD
The splash pad has replaced the wading pool at Riverside Park. A splash pad or "spray park" has various ground sprays, group play stations and taller features that shoot out water in four minute sequences. The features are activated by the user and the sequences vary. Splash pads are an exciting trend in aquatics and is a valuable amenity for Riverside Park.
Splash pad benefits include: Safety, Accessibility, Multiple age group use, Interactive play, and Ability for a longer season and hours.
The splash pad includes a wet deck area of 2,550 square feet and a dry deck of 2,340 square feet. The splash pad features three use zones: teen, family and toddler. A "Nature" theme has been selected. The design depicts the Ice Age Trail and river with a color pallet of neutral colors, blues and greens, reflective of Riverside Park's natural setting. The splash pad includes vertical and ground spray features based on our nature theme.
