Wakarusa Splash Pad - the coolest!

Wakarusa Splash Pad 3


Here’s a budget friendly (free!) way to cool off!  Wakarusa Splash Pad was completed last year, introducing cool new designs.  Besides the customary large water bucket that fills up, the park provides alternative attractions such as water wheels and various options to explore the dynamics of water flow and methods to manipulate it.

For those who prefer to stay dry, the park additionally features a scenic walking trail and a disc golf course.
