The Splashpad at Veterans Memorial Park

The splash pad at Veteran’s Park in Kentwood was recently replaced. The new splash pad is no longer fenced-in or quite as big as it once was, but the new splash pad has lots of fun water features.

Kids of all ages love the fountains, hoops to walk / crawl through, as well as the dump bucket. There are also water sprayers.

Nearby picnic tables make it easy to enjoy lunch here.
