On a hot summer day, what’s better than cooling off in the water. We are surrounded by so many lakes, but for those with little ones that don’t fancy the beach, try out a local splash pad. The splash pad combines the sensations of water movements and interactive play elements in a safe “zero-depth” water play area. There is no need for lifeguards and essentially no drowning risk. The play area is constructed on a concrete slab with various water features that spray water in different patterns and directions, cooling off the visitors on those hot summer days. New splash pads have been popping up in the past couple years, with more to come in 2024! Read below to splash around at 7 Lake Country splash pads.

We are thrilled to announce that we will receive a DNR grant award in the amount of $488,913 towards our all-inclusive playground and splash pad project at Pewaukee Sports Complex. This puts us over the half way point as we continue towards making this a reality to benefit ALL children in Pewaukee.
