Indianapolis Spray Grounds and Splash Pads Open in 2022

Indianapolis has the best splash pads and spray parks! There are dozens throughout the city and our surrounding area. You will want to check them all out with your kids this summer! A splash park is typically a concrete pad with motion-activated sensors that release streams of water, fountains and mists for kids to play in and explore while cooling down on a hot summer day. Sometimes they are referred to as sprinkler parks or spray grounds.

Throughout the day, you’ll hear squeals of delight and surprise as the patterns shift and soak unsuspecting children (and adults). Indianapolis area sprinkler parks are unmonitored and without a lifeguard at all times so please follow splash pad rules and be sure to watch over your own kids.

My friend Jen loves to have birthday parties for her kids at the splash pad. Go early, grab a table in the shade, bring cake, and invite your friends! It’s the perfect party!

Indianapolis Splash Pads Open in 2022

Indy Parks will open all splash pads for the season on Saturday, May 21. Due to the early arrival of summer temperatures, some may open sooner – those we have been able to confirm are noted below! Splash pads typically are turned off after Labor Day weekend. We’ve also been adding closures as they happen, feel free to drop us a message if you find your splash pad is closed. Thank you.
