The Splash Pad at Peay Park officially opened for the Summer of 2020 June 22 with Covid-19 social distancing guidelines for safety. When the splash pad opened in late August 2019, Juliette just turned 1. She was not walking at the time so we decided to wait until Summer 2020 to join the fun.
When we arrived Juliette was staring it down curious to send what was inside. We explained to her it was going to be fun and water she could play in. She looked at us both like, “Yeah, okay if you say so.” She can be so serious at times.
When we walked in there was only one other family already playing and shortly another family arrived. We all kept our distance and the kids were able to play and explore the splash pad. Juliette was brave running through the water tunnels. She cried a little but quickly calmed down after JP picked her up.
There’s so much to play around and have a good time. It features a series of water cannons, floor geysers, water buckets, spray loops, a aquadome, a water tunnel, and plenty of seating integrated within the pad outside of the water’s reach. There’s two large shade awning over two of the seating areas. After leaving Juliette had herself a snack and shortly crashed afterwards for a nap. We had so much fun and we can’t wait to do it again!
