Round Lake Park Playground & Splash pad

The free splash pad is a unique sprinkler-like fixture.  Unlike some splash pads, it does not operate continuously. Instead, users can turn it on by pressing a button that is located on the back of the red megaphone sprayer. It will automatically turn itself off again after a certain amount of time. Families can find the splash pad in the playground area. Splash pads hours are daily from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., between Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day.

Our kids have enjoyed being able to run freely between the marine-themed fountains and the treehouse-ish play structure adjacent. The playground also features quite the unique merry-go-round. Makes us sick just to look at it, but it probably won't faze your older kids. In May of 2019, the City resurfaced the rubber play surface of this playground.

Round Lake Park Beach

The beach season starts mid-June and runs through late August. The beach is guarded from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. daily. Families can also rent water crafts by the hour, between 10:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. Prices are reasonable and choices include canoes, stand-up paddleboards and youth kayaks.

Round Lake Skate Plaza
