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. 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. Important: Do not block or fill drains or remove water from the splash pad. This causes overheating and may result in closure.

Permanent bathrooms at Ray Ross Park are open for the 2024 season.
