Ready, set, get wet at Glencoe splash pad


By Donna Thornton/News Editor

Kids got a one-day shot at trying out the new splash pad at Glencoe City Park during Glencoe’s recent Celebration in the Park, but starting today (May 30), they can find relief from the heat and summer fun every day.

Glencoe Administrative Clerk Sonya Wilson said the splash pad will open for the summer season today. Monday through Saturday, the splash pad is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Sunday, from 1 to 5 p.m. Admission is $5 per person per day, she said, for a full-day of fun.

The City of Glencoe built the splash pad after closing the city’s pool.

In addition to being open daily, the splash pad is available after public hours for parties, Wilson said.

The splash pad can be rented for two hour increments at a cost of $100 for Glencoe residents; $150 for non-Glencoe residents. When the splash pad is rented, she said, its users also have access to the pavilion, unless it has been rented for another function.

In addition to water fountains shooting up from the surface, the splash pad has water guns and dump buckets to give children a major splash-down.
