mcfee park splashpad

The splashpad is now closed. It will reopen in April 2022.

 

The expanded McFee Park splashpad opened in June 2016, making it the largest public splashpad in the greater Knoxville area! The splashpad encompasses a nature theme and includes unique spray elements such as flowers, animals, geysers, misters and a water journey labyrinth area with creeks, flood plains and cascades perfect for toddlers. 

If the splashpad is not working properly or other problems arise, please contact the Parks & Recreation Department weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 865-218-3376 or during evenings/weekends at 865-924-6833 or 865-679-1021In the event of an emergency, call 911; the splashpad address is 917 McFee Road, Farragut, Tenn. 

Operating hours

The splashpad is open through the last weekend in September from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week. The splashpad may close daily from 2 to 3 p.m. for maintenance. Please understand that when you rent a pavilion at McFee Park, you are not renting the splashpad, and we cannot guarantee the splashpad will be running.

Parking

There is very limited parking available beside the splash pad. We ask that all splash pad visitors park in the lower parking lot at the entrance of McFee Park and use the crosswalk to access the greenway up to the splash pad. Please do not park along the roadway or in the grass. Illegally parked cars will be subject to towing. Please come to the park expecting to take a short walk to the splash pad.

Make sure to bring plenty of sunscreen as there is limited shade available at the splash pad.

It’s a good idea to wear water shoes or have flips flops nearby. While the water features keep the play area cool, the surrounding sidewalk and surfaces of the playground are very hot on uncovered little feet.
