The Splash Pad with the jets on looking out at the Refuge.

Located at the end of Main Street, Overlook Park "overlooks" the beauty of the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge. The Park includes a stage where live music is played, a brick plaza, historical information about the early settlement of the Native Americans, and public restrooms. The Overlook Park Splash Pad will be constructed behind the stage at the existing park and provide a new seasonal water play area.

Project Background

This project proposes the construction of a splash pad behind the stage at the existing park. The splash pad will incorporate a combination of natural elements and ground level features for water play with the following considerations:

  • Approximately 2,000 square feet
  • Recirculating system
  • Rain Garden
  • Direct discharge to sewer

Next Steps

The Splash Pad will open in 2024.

    When will the splash pad at Overlook Park open?

    Although it may look complete above ground, construction of the splash pad is not yet finished. There are some equipment issues that are preventing the system from functioning properly and the contractor is working to fix the problems, at their own expense, before the city accepts the project and opens the site. We do not have an opening date at this time.

    This project has taken longer than expected, and we appreciate your patience and understanding. We are excited to bring this new asset to our community but want to ensure that it is not only fun, but also safe, for everyone in our community.

    The Splash Pad will open in 2024, but we're asking for your patience as we make sure everything meets our safety standards. When scheduled, the opening date will be announced on our city website and social media.

    We're almost there, and we can't wait to see you enjoying the splash pad soon!
