Splash Pads

Our Splash Pads are open for the 2021 season!

Splash into Adventure with the City of Abilene’s Parks and Recreation! Abilene has 5 different splash pads for families to visit, located at Grover Nelson Park, Arthur Sears Park, Stevenson Park, Scarborough Park, and Redbud Park! The first splash pad came to town in 2013 in Grover Nelson Park, and four others followed in later years. These aquatic spots provide dozens of different water features for all ages, ranging from water sprayers to slides to massive dumping buckets.
