Newly renovated Rogers Park features Kids Korner Playground and the Rogers Park Splash Pad. The playground and splash pad at Rogers Park encourage active play. Features of the ADA-compliant playground include a sensory garden, a wide variety of climbing apparatuses and a merry-go-all that includes seating for individuals with and without disabilities. There are several new swings, including Zero G swings designed to accommodate children with disabilities and the very popular “generation swing” which allows a parent and their child to enjoy swinging in tandem. The park’s most popular feature is a 75-foot zip line that carries a seated rider from one side of the park to the other. The park is surrounded by benches and plenty of shade as the City incorporated many of the large existing oak trees into the park’s design to take advantage of the natural shade that they provide.

The adjacent splash pad is a state-of-the-art water attraction with 20 different play features. Get drenched by the mega soaker. Cool off with assorted spray tunnels, a blooming spinner, a fun-brella, a mix of open flow puddles, a confetti sprayer and much more.

The splash pad covers a 2100 square foot wet play area which is padded by a colorful slip resistant LifeFloor surface. When its break time from the water action, relax underneath the shaded structure or at one of the many shaded park benches.
