Splash Pad

McFee Park Splash Pad

 The new and expanded splash pad at McFee Park opened in June 2016, making it the largest public splash pad in the greater Knoxville area! The splash pad encompasses a nature theme and includes unique spray elements such as flowers, animals, geysers, misters and a water journey labyrinth area with creeks, flood plains and cascades perfect for toddlers.

If the splash pad is not working properly or other problems arise, please contact the Parks and Leisure Services Department weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 218-3375 or during evenings/weekends at 679-1021. 

In the event of an emergency, call 911 - the splash pad address is 917 McFee Road. 

Operating Hours
The splash pad is open through the last weekend in September from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week. The splash pad may close daily from 2 to 3 p.m. for maintenance. Please understand that when you rent a pavilion at McFee Park, you are not renting the splash pad, and we cannot guarantee the splash pad will be running.
