Spokane is home to a total of 17 splash pads that provide summer fun for kids in many communities throughout the city. Splash pads are open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. A splash pad may close temporarily for maintenance. For updated pool and splash pad closure information, please call the Aquatics Hotline: 509.625.6960.
City of Spokane Parks & Recreation has made the difficult decision to begin winterizing pools and splash pads that aren’t allowed to operate beyond extremely limited capacities until at least Phase 3. We collaborated with our regional partners and evaluated various options for operating pools and splash pads this summer, with every hope of safely opening in some form. Under the Governor’s Safe Start Washington Plan, we could not feasibly open swimming pools or splash pads until at least Phase 3, and then only at 10% capacity. As fall nears, we are at the unfortunate point of being unable to staff and prepare our facilities for an opening if Phase 3 were to come soon. The City operates six outdoor aquatic centers (A.M. Cannon, Hillyard, Liberty, Comstock, Witter, and Shadle) and 17 splash pads. Winterizing will begin this week.
These new splash pad have interactive features.
The following splash pads were built previously and are operational with water for kids, although the features are not the same as the new splash pads.
Please note: All efforts are made to keep the splash pads open. On occasion the pads are closed due to vandalism or maintenance. Please call 509.625.6960 to report any issues and to check hours and closures.
