Although it’s small, the splash pad at Veteran Acres Park in Crystal Lake is mighty. It is perfect for a quick cool off after a romp at the adjacent park, and this splash pad is a great place to play on a hot day.
Kids love this prairie-themed water play yard. Watch them delight in standing on top of the pavement-mounted water fountains and running through the vertical water jets.While there isn’t any shade over the splash pad, the tables and picnic areas are well-shaded by large trees. The bathrooms are easily accessible, there is a shaded pavilion, and there are tons of other activities to do at the same location.This park also includes a playground, basketball courts, sports fields, tennis courts, hiking trails, grills for outdoor cooking, and plenty of open areas. There is so much to do here.
