Weather Policy
For your safety, in accordance with precautions outlined by the National Weather Service, we ask that you please comply with the following weather policy:
  • In the event that thunder is heard or lightning is seen, the water park will be cleared of swimmers and will be kept clear until 30 minutes have passed without hearing thunder or seeing lightning. (The 30-minute clock will restart after each occurrence.)
  • No new admissions will be permitted during this time.
  • If heavy rain is present and there is poor visibility of the bottom of the pool, all patrons will be asked to get out of the pools until rain subsides.
  • If two hours pass during which patrons are unable to swim as result of inclement weather, the management team will close the pool. Management staff will re-evaluate the situation after two hours.
  • If local weather reports indicate the presence of storms for an extended period of time, the water parks will remain closed.
  • No refunds or rain checks will be issued.
  • If the National Weather Service issues a tornado watch, patrons will be notified with the facility's public address system. If the National Weather Service issues a tornado warning, all remaining staff and patrons are to immediately proceed to an emergency shelter (bath house).
  • Patrons choosing to evacuate to their vehicles release the City of Manhattan, Manhattan Parks and Recreation Department and all water park employees for their safety.
  • Water parks will not open unless the temperature is 70 degrees with a clear sky, or 75 degrees with a cloudy sky. In case of adverse weather, the pools will close at the Manager or Head Lifeguard's discretion.

Splash Park
The Splash Park  is located in the southeast corner of City Park and has free admission. Hours are 10am to 7pm, seven days a week during the warm weather months. The splash feature will open May 16.

This free interactive water entertainment area features dumping water buckets, spray nozzles, fountains and water spouts. The surface is level so all can participate.

The Splash Park is located just a few feet from a covered pavilion with picnic tables and bathrooms. Benches line the perimeter of the water feature area. A large playground is just beyond the pavilion providing hours of entertainment opportunity. Children may choose to wear rubber-soled swim shoes for easy transition between the two play areas.

During the season, the Splash Park hours may be extended or reduced depending on the weather. The water feature is on a timer so please wait a few moments if it is not in operation upon your arrival.  

As on any playground, children should be supervised to ensure their safety.
