Three parks in Overland Park feature splash pads.
Splash pads are free to use and are open May 1 – Sept. 30 during normal park hours, 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. Splash pads may occasionally be closed for weather or maintenance.
The Thompson Park splash pad sits at the center of Thompson Park, 8045 Santa Fe Drive, in Downtown Overland Park.
Activate the splash pad by pressing the button on the nearby pole.
The Roe Park splash pad sits on the former Roe Pool site at 10400 Roe.
There are several fountains and spray features at the splash pad, which can be activated by pressing or stepping on large buttons on the ground.
There are also two playgrounds for young and older children, a nature play area, restrooms, shelters, a walking trail, an open field, and baseball and softball fields at Roe Park.
Sapling Grove Park, at 8210 Grant, was renovated in late 2017 and now includes a splash pad you can activate by pressing your hand on a podium pad.
There is also a playground with a basket swing and balance beam, shelter, walking trail, and restrooms at Sapling Grove Park.
