Washington Park in Neenah got a big refresh in 2019 including a completely new splash pad! This welcome addition for cooling off in the summer heat has so many fun features that are sure to make this a spot that your family will love to visit to play. If you incentivize your departure with a cone at Dairy Queen just down Winneconne Avenue, do not miss their popcorn, it is delicious!
The firefighter themed splash pad is complete with a splash fire hydrant, fire truck, fire house and more for fun water play adventures and cool summertime play! The Neenah-Menasha Firefighters Charitable Foundation sold stress ball firefighters to raise additional money for the splash pad completion in 2019.
- Season: Memorial Day through Labor Day
- Hours: Open Daily (Sunday through Saturday) from 10 am – 8 pm

Playground & Exercise Equipment
The playground here has a rubberized surface and fun elements like large scale musical instruments, a webbed climber, and fun balancing elements. You can squeeze in a little self care with a workout on the newly installed exercise equipment or challenge your kids to a monkey bar race.
Neenah native Ben Erickson painted four plywood murals on the side of the Shelter in the park that portray elements of nature including land, water, air and animals. Each of these themes are incorporated in iconic Neenah landmarks including downtown Neenah, Shattuck Park, Kimberly Point Park Lighthouse, Doty Cabin and ThedaCare Regional Medical Center.
