Splash Pads Shut Off For the Season

Summer temperatures persisted beyond Labor Day this year and we enjoyed extended use of the splash pads at Downtown Park and Grass Lawn Park. Alas, the days grew shorter and the weather cooler, fall layers took the place of summer shorts, and the splash pads were officially shut off for the season on Monday, Sept. 18.

There are plenty of activities offered by the City of Redmond to keep you entertained this fall. With classes and programs for many ages and interests, you can keep active and engaged, rain or shine. 

Fill your family's fall with fun
