Fasola Park Splash Pad

On Friday, June 12, 2015, Fasola Park opened its greatly anticipated, splash pad. The splash pad is located with Fasola Park next to the playground. During the warmer months, it is open from 8 am to 8 pm.

The splash pad is small and compact. Children could play on either the splash pad or the playground both within eyes’ view. The ground is not very slippery but it’s best to wear water shoes while at the splash pad.

There is a drain in the center for the water so the water is always being circulated.

There is a green button in the center of the splash pad. The splash pad is on a timer and every so often it will go off. As long as someone presses the center green button the splashing and water fun will continue. Children love pressing the button in the center.

We went to the splash park today (8/15/21) for the first time. We were surprised and disgusted by the trash everywhere! There were empty drink containers on picnic tables and on the ground all over as well other trash. It looked like there had been a party there the day before and the bags of trash were still there and were spilling over. There was even trash in the water area.

That's so disappointing to hear. I wonder if there's any signage there with the park office's phone number so visitors can call to report such situations. - Jenn
