Splash Pad will be open from Saturday, May 27 through the end of September (weather permitting). The splash pad will be closed from Tuesday, September 5th through Sunday, September 10th for the Fredericktown Tomato Show. Hours of operation are 11AM to 7PM.
Kokosing park consists of a 1,200 square foot splash pad, public restrooms, decorative retaining walls, artificial turf, tables and seats with shade umbrellas, park benches, new landscaping, new decorative street and security lighting, new sidewalks, a totally reconstructed parking lot, and much more – all at no cost to the local taxpayers!
Kokosing Splash Park was made possible through hundreds of generous individual and corporate contributions from donors throughout Knox County and beyond. With the oversight of the Knox County Foundation, the Splash Park was built at no cost to the local taxpayers. The Village’s Service Department and the Fredericktown Recreation District will partner in operating and maintaining the Kokosing Park.
Please help us keep the park safe and secure for patrons of all ages. We will continue to provide updates with more information regarding the park in the future. We are looking forward to seeing the community enjoy Kokosing Park for decades to come!
To save energy and to save unnecessary wear and tear, the splash pad at Kokosing Park is on a push button sensor, so the water only comes on as needed, rather than pumping all day.
To start the splash pad water during the operating hours of 11 AM to 7 PM, please press the button on the floor on the south-east side of the splash pad that is lit up in red. The button will turn green for a few seconds, then go back to red. Wait for 30 to 45 seconds and the splash pad water will start. If water does not come on, press the button again. The splash pad will run for 15 minutes and automatically shut off. Please press the red button again to restart it.
In order to keep patrons of all ages safe, we ask that all users of the park abide by these simple rules, which are posted at the park. The following is an overview of the rules:
