New Western Springs Splash Pad and Picnic in the Park

Outdoor Places to Go

There’s a new splash pad being built at Spring Rock Park in Western Springs! The grand opening will be June 4, 2021 and will be paired with Party in the Park this year with free activities, food, and treats.

Western Springs Splash Pad

The splash pad is replacing the circle of grass in the center of the playground area and will have spray structures with an activation button and a concrete surface. The rendering below shows the type of equipment that will be installed.

We stopped by to see the progress this week and it looks like they are on track! Please note that Western Springs Park District was testing it this afternoon and whoever was at the park got a surprise bonus of testing it with them. The splash pad is not officially open yet.

Picnic in the Park

The ribbon cutting ceremony for the new splash pad will be on June 4, 2021 at 10am and Picnic in the Park starts at 11am. Bring a picnic blanket and lunch! There will be an inflatable slide, inflatable skeeball, and a balloon artist from 11am-1pm. They will also have free slices of Domino’s pizza, free bottled water, and free sno cones while supplies last.
