Naperville Park District operates two splash pads: one at the 95th Street Community Plaza at 3109 Cedar Glade Drive and one at Wolf’s Crossing Community Park at 3252 Wolf’s Crossing Road. Both splash pads are scheduled to open for the season on Memorial Day Weekend, weather permitting.
With Centennial Beach planning to open for the season Memorial Day Weekend, the Park District will not offer Midday Spray at Rotary Hill in 2022. Midday Spray began during the summer 0f 2020 to provide a place for kids to enjoy water play while Centennial Beach was closed, then ran for one more year as the pandemic continued to limit some recreation options. The splash pads at the 95th Street Community Plaza and Wolf’s Crossing Community Park provide similar water play with many more features to enjoy, as well as playgrounds and other park amenities.
