Kids playing at splash pad

Plainfield Lions Club Splash Pad

The Plainfield Lions Club constructed a Splash Pad in the Plainfield Veteran's Park after extensive fund raising.  The grand opening of this youth centered project took place on July 5, 2014.

The new splash pad is a fully-automated play area that creates a fun atmosphere for the entire family while providing a safe, zero-depth recreation environment that doesn't require lifeguard supervision. The Splash Pad consists of three activity bays that are designed for all age groups to promote family interaction.

The Plainfield Lions Club donated $30,000 to the project.  Additional donations of over $70,000 came from individuals and businesses in our communities to make this project a success.

The names of the donors to the Splash Pad are listed on a special Donor Honor Roll sign that is diplayed at the site of the splash pad.  These individuals and businesses provided monetary support to the Plainfield Lions Club as the members worked to achieve the $100,000 goal.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Splash Pad?
The Splash Pad is a fully-automated, zero-depth water recreation area. It has three activity bays that are designed for all age groups and promotes family interaction.

What are the three activity bays?
The "family bay" is appropriate for all age groups and is the central area of the splash pad. The "toddler bay" is created specifically for younger children.  It provides an area that is inviting to infants and toddlers and is developed to meet their needs. The "teen bay" provides ample space and opportunity to challenge the most energetic members of the family. This area contains water cannons for water fights and team games.

What about water conservation?
The Splash Pad uses a patented smart flow system to optimize water consumption. In this system, water is supplied to the play features and then drained away to a waste system in a single pass. Water conservation comes from the use of specially designed reduced-consumption nozzles and operational sequences programmed into the play features. These features reduce water consumption by 30- to 50-percent.

Are there future plans for expanding the Splash Pad?
The Splash Pad has anchoring devices that were installed during initial construction. These anchors will allow for interchanging different fixtures and adding new ones to maximize the play value of the Splash Pad for years to come.

What other features can be found at the Splash Pad?

The Plainfield Lions Club has added picnic benches and memorial park benches to the area for family members to enjoy the Splash Pad.  There are future plans to add grills to the area in the summer of 2015 to provide additional opportunities for families to plan splash pad outings at the park.
