HOURS & OPERATION: The GL Splashpad, located at 525 East River Street, held a kick-off countdown on Friday, May 24, 2019 to start the splashpad season! The GL Splashpad is now open daily, from 10:00 AM - 8:00 PM depending on weather, through Labor Day weekend.
HOW DOES IT WORK? The 2,000 square foot splashpad has 19 water sprays within different spray zones allowing visitors to choose how much they are sprayed. The splashpad is universally accessible, making it the first amenity of this kind in all of the City’s 13 parks and open spaces. Two additional handicap parking spaces with ramp access to the splashpad have been added along East River Street. A 3-foot high bollard with a large button located on the splashpad activates the water sprays when pressed. The water sprays are set on a timer allowing it to only be in use when visitors have engaged the button.
IS THERE A COST FOR ADMISSION? No, The GL Splashpad is free for all visitors to utilize!
WHERE CAN WE SIT? A rock wall provides seating that overlooks the Splashpad and the Grand River. We encourage guests to utilize this and the plush green areas surrounding the splashpad, many guests choose to bring a blanket, towels, or folding chairs to sit and enjoy the park.
