According to Winona Lake Parks and Recreation Department Director Holly Hummitch, the K21 Splash Pad has seen numerous visitors nearly every day since its opening in 2015. The splash pad opened on May 15, the weekend of the annual Fat and Skinny Tire Festival. Since then, Hummitch noted the splash pad has been well received from both members of the community as well as visitors from afar.
Utilizing filtered, recycled water, the splash pad features numerous types of water play for all ability levels, a feature that was paramount in the design.
According to the Limitless Park master plan, the vision for Winona Lake Limitless Park is “to create a place that embraces the natural beauty of the surrounding environment and engages everyone in ‘limitless’ play.” The master plan notes that “limitless” is defined as including children who are typically developing, have neurological disabilities, intellectual disabilities, require wheelchairs or other medical equipment, have physical disabilities and/or have social or emotional difficulties.
