Splasheville

Park District: Central
Census Tract: 1

 


Happening Now

Splasheville, the very popular interactive splash pad located in Pack Square Park is being overhauled!  The project includes replacing the controls, wiring and plumbing and repairing or replacing many of the surface tiles and their supporting gridwork.

 

 


Background

In 2020, an assessment was completed of all three fountains in Pack Square Park.  Two of the fountains, Splasheville and the fountain in the mid-block area, were not operable at the time.  After investigating multiple options, the decision was made to allocate the available funding to rebuild Splasheville due to its popularity in the community.

 


Timeline

Work begins in mid-March 2021 and will take approximately 10 weeks.
