Crooked Creek Park Splashpad

A rendering of the Crooked Creek Park Splashpad
A splashpad is coming to Indian Trail's Crooked Creek Park, and will be located beside the park's shaded playground and zipline area. The splashpad, at 2,464 square feet, will include eight above-ground water features and seven in-ground sprayers - including spraying flowers and animals to complete the nature theme, and interactive elements to provide visitors with a new experience. It is expected to be completed later this summer.

"We've heard from a lot of our park fans that the one missing piece at Crooked Creek Park is a splashpad, and we're happy to say we'll be fixing that soon," Indian Trail Parks and Recreation Director Jay Tryon said. "We're so excited to be able to fill that need for our residents and give them another great way to stay active and healthy in town."
