The Splashpad at Joe Taylor Park

Kids will love the splash pad at Joe Taylor Park. All over a concrete surface and partially fenced-in, it features dump buckets and spraying rings to run through.

If younger kids aren't brave enough for dump buckets, they can test out the sprayers from the ground.

Several benches are alongside the full-sun splash pad for parents to supervise their kids. A covered pavilion is nearby for a lunch or an escape from the sun.

Bathrooms are adjacent to the splash pad.

Something Unique About This Destination

The park was designed with sustainability in mind.

The use of LED parking lot lighting, a system of irrigation that reuses the splash pad water for the trees and lawn, and a green-focused permeable parking lot are all efforts to be an earth-friendly park.
