Splash into Summer

It is a HOT one out there – and it looks to stay the same for the next couple of days at least. Thankfully, relief (in the form of water) is on the way!

The Middleton Splash Pad is opened Memorial Day! Located at 6300 Mendota Ave, just off Allen Blvd, the Splash Pad is FREE and open daily from 10 am – 7 pm.

Cypress Splash Park is open daily 11 am – 7 pm. Located on Madison’s south side, on the corner of Cypress Way and Magnolia Lane, the spray park is FREE and features both a wet and a dry play area. The wet play area will have misting and low spray water features for toddlers and pre-schoolers and rain shower and cascading water features for adolescents. The wet play area is fenced and unlocked daily in the summer months by a park attendant. The season for the wet spray area corresponds with Goodman Pool’s open season which is first day of Madison Metropolitan School Districts summer break to Labor Day. The dry play area features traditional play structures and swings. This dry play area is open to the public year round.

The Monona Public Pool is open for the season. Go here for info on hours and prices. Regular season hours begin Thursday.

Goodman Pool opens for the season on Friday, June 10, from noon – 7 pm. First 500 kids get in free, thanks to Goodman’s Jewelers. (follow the link for hours and prices).

And we’re really excited that Fitchburg is developing a Splash Pad as well! They hope to begin construction on the Fitchburg Splash Pad at McKee Farms Park in 2013, but are still in need of donations. Two of our RM mamas live in that area, so 2013 can’t come soon enough!

If you know of any other local splash pads or pools or beaches, please mention them in the comments below!

  1. Don’t forget the DeForest Splash Park ! We just came back from there and it’s a blast and almost no one knows about it. It’s very close to an exit off the interstate I-90.

    It’s called Conservancy Commons Park off of Innovation Drive. Includes a splash pad that operates from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day each year.
