City of Jacksonville splash pads will open for the summer season Saturday, June 27, 2020 at 10AM. We want to keep everyone safe and ask that all splash pad users, guests, and chaperones continue to follow CDC guidelines. The City has consulted with Onslow County Health officials about best practices and will have State guidelines posted at each site. Those guidelines do require reduced capacity. The maximum occupancy number will also be posted at each site. To allow for more to enjoy the splash pads, please consider limiting your time during visits. We ask that you follow the COVID-19 rules posted at the splash pads. For more information, including locations and times of operation, visit JacksonvilleNC.gov/SplashPad
