Splash Pad at Knightdale Station Park

Splash Pad

Need a way to cool off this summer? Join us for some fun in the sun this summer at the Splash Pad. There is 2,000 square foot of fun for the kids and kid in you, with an additional 1,500 square foot deck containing two shade structures and benches. The splash pad utilizes a recirculated water pump, which filters and treats water, much like a pool. A decorative fence, that encloses the entire pad and deck, is installed to protect users and the facility.
