Dear Mokena Community Park District Yunker Farm Splash Pad Enthusiasts:
Awesome news - the opening of the Splash Pad on July 12 is just a few weeks away! The Park District has distributed over 800 free resident children season passes and over 600 free daily passes to resident grandparents. Our staff is extremely impressed with the outpouring of enthusiasm for the Splash Pad. Thank you to those that have shared our social media posts and have contacted us with your concerns!
Safety is our number one priority, so we appreciate your patience in regards to our opening date. We had planned to open in early June; however, it did take several extra weeks to install additional safety devices mandated by the Illinois Department of Public Health and the Mokena Fire Protection District.
Our goal is to provide the best possible safe and fun experience for ALL that have expressed their desire to join us for fun at the Splash Pad this Summer. Our staff has conducted extensive research on all the area Splash Pads to make sure that we are consistent with area Park Districts. Information has been posted on our website and social media regarding rules, regulations as well as hours of operation.
Looking forward to seeing you out at the Splash Pad this Summer! Please make sure to provide us with feedback once you have the opportunity to visit us at the Splash Pad. This will be extremely helpful for us as we make adjustments to rules, regulations and operating schedules based on the experiences of our guests and staff.
See you at the Yunker Farm Splash Pad!
Mike Selep, Executive Director
