Press release from Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation:

Splash Pads Remain Open to Combat Hot Weather
Memorial Pool Closed August 7th

(August 4, 2010) – Memorial Pool will close for the season Saturday, August 7 at 5 pm. Northside Pool will close at 5 pm on August 21, and McMillen Pool will close at 6 pm on August 21. Closing the pools in August is a standard practice due to the majority of part-time Parks & Recreation staff returning to school.

All of the City’s free splash pads will remain open through September.

Splash pad hours are 9 am – 9 pm daily through Labor Day. After Labor Day, splash pad hours will be noon – 8 pm daily.

Splash pads are located at the following parks:

  • Buckner Park, 6114 Bass Road
  • McCormick Park, 2300 Raymond & Holly
  • Memorial Park, 2301 Maumee & Glasgow
  • Robert E. Meyers Park, Inside North Gate of Parkview Field on Jefferson Blvd
  • Shoaff Park, 6401 St. Joe Rd.
  • Waynedale Park, 2900 Koons & Elzey

Splash pads are touch activated. To turn the water on, look for a short pole (approx. 3 ft. tall) with a plastic dome top located within the play area. Place your hands on the dome for a few seconds. The water will appear shortly and run for several minutes. When the water stops, repeat the procedure. The splash pad at Robert E. Meyers Park is foot activated. Look for the touch pad on the ground at the east side of the splash pad.
