KNOXVILLE, Tenn.— As the weather heats up, take comfort knowing you can stay cool every day at three splash pads in Knox County.
The 2021 splash pad season started May 1 and runs through September 12. The free automated water playgrounds are open to the public from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day, weather permitting.
The Knox County Parks and Recreation Department operates splash pads at three locations:
- Carl Cowan Park, 10058 S. Northshore Drive
- Powell Station Park, 2318 W. Emory Road
- New Harvest Park, 4775 New Harvest Lane
“Knox County is so fortunate to have attractions like this in our parks,” said Knox County Mayor Glenn Jacobs. “They're a great place for families to get together and fun for kids of all ages. Just be sure to read the rules and be safe."
