There are splash pads at three parks in Overland Park.
Both are open daily from dawn to dusk during the warmer months. The water is activated after the threat of freeze has passed in the spring, and turned off before the first freeze in the fall.
The splash pads are on for the 2021 season.
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.
