Lake Country Rotary Splash Pad

“Our parks are among Hartland’s finest resources.  The

Splash Pad will significantly enhance family recreational opportunities as a new and different fun-filled experience.  We are so pleased that the Hartland Rotary Club has taken on this project.  Rotary’s civic involvement is a cornerstone in our community of service.”

“The Splash Pad in Marathon Park has been well-received

by the community. Attendance there is equal to our outdoor

swimming pools on a monthly basis.

Parents bring their children to the facility knowing that the kids will enjoy themselves in a safe, refreshing atmosphere that is not dependent upon the child’s ability to swim.”

The Lake Country Rotary and Lake Country Foundation will be hosting a Grand Opening celebration for the Lake Country Rotary Splash Pad at Nixon Park, Hartland WI on Saturday June 29, 2013 beginning at 12pm.  There is no admission fee for the event or the splash pad.  The event will feature music, games for children, food, drink, and ice cream for purchase.  Ceremony at 1pm.

A splash pad combines the sensations of water movements and interactive play elements in a safe “zero-depth” water play area. There is no need for lifeguards and virtually no drowning risk.  The play area is constructed on a concrete slab with various water features that spray water in different patterns and directions, cooling off visitors and providing for hours of fun.

The splash pad is the first of its kind in Waukesha County and made possible by generous community members and local businesses.  The Village of Hartland is planning to have the splash pad open regularly from 10am-7pm, Memorial Day through Labor Day.  Saturday June 29th is the first planned day of operation as construction crews are racing against the clock and the weather to complete the project.
