Splash Park at Milestone Park

Located at 1250 N. Fairwind Blvd. across from Fairwind Subdivision

Splash Pad is OPEN

The Sandwich Park District is happy to announce that the Splash Pad is now open! The hours of operation are 9am-8pm Monday-Sunday. If it starts to rain the splash pad will be closed. The Parks Department has worked hard to get everything up and running with the Governors new orders. With the Splash Pad open there are some things you will need to know. The maximum occupancy will be no more than 40 people, the Governors order is 50% of normal capacity. The water fountains are turned off per the order so please bring your own source of hydration. Face covering will be worn when not engaged in water play; patrons are expected to maintain a 6’ social distance where possible. We hope you will enjoy the Splash Pad and follow these guidelines. We also encourage patrons to please limit your stay at the Splash Pad to no more than two hours. This will give others the chance to use the splash pad. If these guidelines are not followed or we get excessive abuse we will have to consider closing.

The entrance for the Splash Park is at 1250 N. Fairwind Blvd. across from Fairwind Subdivision.

Rules are posted by the entrance of the splash area. No street shoes will be allowed on the wet area. Only your bare feet or water shoes are allowed. No exceptions! Please, no bikes, roller-blades or skateboards allowed in the Splash Park. Also, please keep your dogs away from the area.

The water is recirculated and chemically treated, so its important to keep the park clean. There is NO SMOKING allowed anywhere in the park. Thank you for understanding.

Due to some recent concerns it needs to be explained that the policy regarding organized groups of 11 or more is stating that, they must apply for a permit and receive permission to use the Splash Pad. At this time, the park district is not issuing permits to organized groups, therefore they are not allowed to use the splash pad. The volume of participants and the bather load is a concern. Also, the park district is honoring the residents and tax payers to allow for controlled use and safety. This issue regarding organized groups will be discussed by the Board of Commissioners to possibly allow large groups to use the facility during the week, for a short period of time.

We will keep the residents informed as to the decision and it will be posted on this website and at the Splash Park.
