During the summer season (Memorial Day to Labor Day), HealthEast has a free splash pad with two platforms -- a larger platform with dumping buckets, nozzles and flower showers, and a smaller platform for smaller children. The splash pads have automatic shutoffs, but users can reactivate the system by simply touching a button located near each splash pad. Excess water is used to irrigate the sports fields. In season, the splash pad is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. Nearby restrooms are available during these hours.
