New Splash Pad Opens at Townline Park
Starting Friday, June 24, the splash pad will be open from 9 am to 8 pm daily.
Please join us for the official Splash Pad Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on Wednesday, June 29 at 4 pm at Townline Park. Bring the family out to the park, grab a popsicle, and celebrate this exciting new community asset with us!
The first of its kind in Lake Forest, the splash pad is a place for children to gather, play, and cool off during the summer months. Interactive features including different spouts, sprays, fountains, and bubblers will offer sensory rich, creative, and engaging play opportunities.
Splash pads provide a unique opportunity for inclusive, safe water play. For a variety of reasons including mobility, swim skill, developmental challenges, child to parent supervision ratio, etc., it may not be feasible or practical for some families to visit the beach or go to a swimming pool.
A splash pad creates safe access to the wonder and love of water for families with children of all ages, abilities, and circumstances. The features are designed to be accessible and are organized by size so there is a natural separation of older and younger children, while still the ability to all play and socialize together.
