The Town of Plainfield is excited to announce the groundbreaking for Splash Island Waterpark. Plainfield Town Council Members, Town staff, Banning Engineering representatives, Patterson Horth representatives and other Plainfield community members and partners gathered to celebrate the groundbreaking.
In August, the Plainfield Town Council approved a $8,364,500.00 contract with Patterson Horth Inc. to expand Splash Island Outdoor Waterpark. The expansion includes three new waterslides, a splash pad, tiki hut cabana rentals and an updated pool maintenance building.
The 4 ½-acre Caribbean-themed outdoor waterpark, which opened to the public in June of 2004, currently features three waterslides, a 900-foot leisure river, an interactive children’s play area and more.
“As we prepare to celebrate 20 years of the Richard A. Carlucci Recreation & Aquatic Center, we are excited to bring fresh amenities to this community staple,” said Robin Brandgard, Plainfield Town Council President. “The expansion of Splash Island Waterpark is a testament to the growth and vibrancy of our community. It demonstrates our commitment to continually improving and investing in our town.”
With the addition of three additional waterslides, the expansion improves the waterpark by offering guests six large waterslides. A new splash pad will be installed within the park, as well, extending the department’s aquatic operations beyond the established pool season. Visitors will have new opportunities for private spaces within the park, with the new tiki hut cabana rentals. The project also includes replacement of the kids’ play structure located in the main pool.
The Splash Island expansion is expected to be completed in time for the 2024 Summer Season on Memorial Day weekend.
