Handy Park Splash Pad Hours and Admission
The Splashpad at Handy Park is open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from Noon-7pm and on days when the NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE predicts temperatures of 90 degrees or higher. The park and splash pad are FREE and open to everyone.
The park is a wonderful place to spend the day. The girls had a ton of fun playing in the water. There are a ton of tables in the shade and under the pavilion to enjoy a snack, lunch or just sit and relax for a bit.
The splash pad consists of many different car themed elements. The water was pretty cold, but it felt great since the weather was so hot the day we went. The elements were on a timer and would cycle through a few different settings.
I also love that public restrooms were available in the community center and the park was very clean and maintained.
We had a lot of fun. If this park were closer then we would visit a lot more often.
