The City of Mankato is seeking the public's feedback on locations and play features for a proposed splash pad within the city. The splash pad would be divided into three zones: Gentle Activity (ages two to four years); Dynamic Zone (ages 7+); and, Universal Family Zone (all ages).

Vote for Locations: Three park locations are feasible for a splash pad to be placed within the next one to five years: Alexander Park, Highland Park and the future Public Works Park. These parks were determined based on the following:

  • Equitable location.
  • Ample space to place a splash pad without impacting overall park space and feel.
  • Ample parking.
  • Walkable location for surrounding neighborhoods.
  • Cost effective utilities installation.

Although these parks are feasible, community members are invited to share any other Mankato park locations that should be considered.

Vote for Features: Complete the survey, "Vote for Up to Three Splash Pad Features" to help determine what play features should be considered for a splash pad. View details about each of the features.

Installation of a splash pad aligns with initiatives in Mankato's Strategic Plan, which includes investing in recreational opportunities that are affordable, increase community access and enhance the City's quality of life.
