The splash pad in Nelson Park near the Abilene Zoo is scheduled to open this Saturday.

Free to the public and operating seasonally from sun up to sun day, seven days a week, the 3,000-square-foot splash park has 26 water features and areas for younger and older children.

According to a city of Abilene news release, the water features are triggered by sensors which are activated by tapping the hand at the main entrance.

“Nelson Splash also has shaded picnic tables, water fountain, and restroom facilities,” the news release said. “Open flame barbeque pits are not allowed within 100 feet of Nelson Splash.”
