Harrisburg Park Splash Pad

Splash Pad Graphic

Welcome to the Harrisburg Park Splash Pad 

Opening date for the 2023 season will be posted as soon as the schedule has been determined.


The information below is from the 2022 summer season and is for reference only. Information and details for the 2023 Splash Pad will be posted closer to the season opening date.

Continue reading below for hours of operation, closed dates, location, tickets, and additional information.

 Walk-Up and Pre-Registration spots are available for each "Wave" time.

We HIGHLY ENCOURAGE pre-registration (link below). Tickets are required for all adults and children (12-months and older). Maximum capacity is 100 people per time slot.

   Parents and Guardians are required to supervise their own children. Although we do have staff at the splash pad to check you in, clean between waves, and sell concession items, the staff does not supervise the splash pad during each wave. 

Children should NOT be allowed on the splash pad without adult/parental supervision! We have found that the slide is a highly utilized feature that may need additional parental/guardian supervision. 

We appreciate your assistance with this! 


Pre-registration for the Splash Pad is highly encouraged! Walk-ups are welcome if spaces are available. Walk-up ticketing will begin approximately 10-15 minutes prior to the start of each wave at the Splash Pad window. Walk-ups will be allowed until capacity is reached.  

See below for additional information regarding group (10 - 30 people) reservation requests.
