Ray Ross Park and Splash Pad

People using splash pad

It’s one, two, three strikes and you are out at the old ballpark! Ray Ross Park is home to year-round sports fields and basketball courts, a free baseball-themed splash pad, a playground and two park shelters with grills.

Splash pad 

The splash pad will open May 22, 2021. See you then!

Looking for a way to cool off in the summer? Look no further than Ray Ross Park! Designed to look like a baseball diamond, this splash pad offers interactive water features suitable for kids of all ages.

Weather permitting, the spray park is open each summer from late-May through Labor Day from 9 a.m.-8 p.m. daily.

Park shelters

A new park shelter was built in summer 2020, now giving the park two shelters.

Both shelters are located on the west side of the park, next to the playground and splash pad. The first shelter has eight tables and two grills, the second shelter (built in 2020) has six tables and three grills. These shelters are not available for exclusive use (not rentable) and are open to the public during park hours.

Permanent restrooms are located by the concession and ball fields at the northeast area of the park and are open approximately April 15 to October 15, weather permitting. Port-a-lets are located near the shelters and playground.
